Reef Safe Fish :Wrasse's

As you know not all marine aquarium fish are reef safe. Many saltwater fish will harm corals, many saltwater fish will harm or kill invertebrates. Reef Safe saltwater fish are marine fish that are safe for corals and invertebrates to include in any reef aquarium. While it has to be said that no marine fish can be considered 100% trustworthy around live coral and small invertebrates, purchasing any of the saltwater fish in the Reef Safe category will be as close to a best choice for a reef aquarium as you can get. There are rouge fish in any species, so if your new tank member is messing with your corals or invert's, remove it and take it for a ride to the LFS. If you ever are confused or have a question while trying to decide which fish to buy for your home reef tank don't hesitate to email for our expert opinion.

The most common reef safe fisha are all the different Cleaner Wrasse and fairy wrasse's species. The Fairy and Flasher style wrasses in this grouping below are found throughout tropical Indo-Pacific shallow waters swimming two to eight feet above sand or rocky substrata. Most can be found in depths ranging from 10 - 75 feet, although a few rarer ones are found deeper than 150 feet. Generally, these fish form aggregations of one dominant male and several (or more) females, and they spend the better part of their day feeding. The males are always larger and more colorful than the females and will flash or display more vibrant colors during courtship.

Special Note: When you see "Aquarium Conditioned" on one of our featured saltwater fish, it means the fish have gone through our Aquarium Conditioning Process which is from 26 days to 60 days long, depending on species. During this time the arriving ocean fresh fish first go through Quarantine, then go into our aquarium life systems. In our aquarium life systems they will get used to aquarium life and we work on getting them to eat well through a special process we use to change ocean fresh saltwater fish over to our aquarium conditioned fish. The process includes enough time to let us have confidence sending marine fish to you knowing they will do well in proper aquarium conditions and they will also eat well, which are the two most important factors if you expect a long life saltwater aquarium fish.

Countless scientific studies have examined the particulars of this symbiotic feeding relationship and ultimately shown that this small fish is one of the most singularly important species for the overall health of coral reef ecosystems. But, despite this fish’s abundance and prominence in the wild, it appears that generations of researchers may have missed one crucial detail concerning it… there is more than one species of Bluestreak Cleaner Wrasse! The African Bluestreak Cleaner Wrasse sports a sliver front half, blue back half with a black streak down its sides. They are active swimmers and are great replacements for cleaner shrimp.

Tank Recommendations: The Bluestreak Cleaner Wrasse requires plenty of swimming room as they are very active fish, and should be housed with dissimilar shaped and colored fishes in the community marine aquarium. A tight fitting lid or canopy is a must as they can leap from open topped aquariums or into uncovered overflow boxes in reef ready style displays.

Food and diet: Feed finely chopped meaty foods such as shrimp, brine shrimp, squid, clams, chopped beef heart all vitamin enriched with Selcon or something similar. In the wild they feed constantly while performing their normal cleaning activities, in the aquarium they should be fed several times a day.

Otherwise, the Bluestreak Cleaner Wrasse is quite easy to care for given a suitable tank. They can often live over eight years, with the only difficult hurdle being their feeding.

Six Line Wrasse
Pseudocheilinus hexataenia
Six Line Wrasse, Pseudocheilinus hexataenia


Description:The Six Line Wrasse is a popular is a popular Wrasse species among marine aquarists keeping either reef aquariums or FOWLR community aquariums. Six Line Wrasse have very vibrant coloration with 6 distinct blue horizontal blue lines overtop of a base orange body with a green tailfin. Six Line Wrasse are more than just a colorful fish species, but a very active species as well. They will spend much of their time swimming about the aquarium darting in and out of rocky caves and crevices looking for small food items on which to prey. Their active swimming style makes them almost as popular with marine aquarium hobbyists as their vibrant coloration. Six Line Wrasse are considered a "reef safe" Wrasse species, that is unlikely to bother most corals. They will generally spend their time hunting for small micro faunae, small crustaceans, flatworms or bristle worms. It is their propensity for eating bristle worms that has made them a sought after species for may aquarists who are trying to keep bristle worm populations in check. While a peaceful species, Six Line Wrasse will show aggression towards another Six Line Wrasse (unless a mated pair).

Tank Recommendations: It is best to keep this species with plenty of live rock and horizontal swimming room, so that they can patrol a suitable territory and limit aggression towards others. The Six Line Wrasse also benefits from the presence of a refugium, as a strong population of copepods, amphipods and other micro faunae will provide them an excellent food source and curb aggression. Like most Wrasse, the Six Line Wrasse is quite capable of defending itself against larger more boisterous species as its speed and maneuverability make it a difficult species to pick on or bully.

Food and diet: Six Line Wrasse are very active feeders that will generally spend the majority of the day cruising up and down the reef looking for food items on which to feed. In an aquarium with a sufficient population of micro faunae, the Six Line Wrasse will need only supplemental feedings of various meaty foods. Their overall diet should consist of a variety of meaty items including: vitamin enriched meaty frozen preparations, brine shrimp, mysis shrimp or flake or pellet foods formulated for carnivores.

Reef Compatability: Excellent aquarium fish that will help keep your tank clean of many parasites.

Orange - Back Fairy Wrasse
Cirrhilabrus aurantidorsalis (Indonesia)
The Orange-back fairy wrasse, Cirrhilabrus aurantidorsalis
Description:The orange-back fairy wrasse is closely related to C. solorensis but is not such a familiar species in the aquarium. Males have a crimson head, the back and upper part of the flanks are orange, the belly is bright blue, and a pinkish-red streak runs along the flanks. As males mature, a darker, crown-like mark appears on the top of the head, and scales along the flanks develop dark outlines. If anything, the colors of this species tend to intensify in the aquarium. This is another bold species that spends its time cruising rapidly around the aquarium, generally high in the water column. C. aurantidorsalis is only found in Sulawesi, Indonesia. It grows to around 4 inches and, like C. solorensis, should be kept in a minimum of a 4-foot tank. This species, or at least some individual specimens, will eat red flatworms Convolutriloba retrogemma
Tank Recommendations: The maximum adult size is around 3-1/2 inches. We recommend keeping in a tank of at least 75 gallons in size. A 2-3 inch sand bed so they can bury themselves in the sand to sleep or hide. Live Rock should be provided for all Fairy and Filament Wrasses. The Live Rock provides numerous small life forms that the Wrasses consider a tasty treat as well as another place to hide when they feel threatened. Note: Wrasses are known to jump from aquariums.

Description: The Red Head Solon Fairy Wrasse originates from the west Pacific Ocean and the eastern Indian Ocean, and is primarily found in the waters surrounding Indonesia and Bali. Also called the Solar fairy Wrasse, Tricolor Fairy Wrasse, Clown Fairy Wrasse, Red Head Wrasse and Solorensis Fairy Wrasse, like most other fairy wrasses is a truly stunning fish. The Solorensis Fairy Wrasse adapts well to captivity and is easy to care for. It is very colorful, hardy, and friendly towards other fishes which make it an ideal saltwater and reef aquarium fish. It is somewhat suitable as a beginner fish even though there are other cheaper fish species such as many damsels that can be said to be better beginner fish for those who want to keep their first saltwater aquarium. Aquarists that have kept saltwater species for a while should not have any trouble caring for this fish.

Tank Recommendations: The maximum adult size is around 5 inches. We recommend keeping in a tank of at least 75 gallons in size. A 2-3 inch sand bed so they can bury themselves in the sand to sleep or hide. Live Rock should be provided for all Fairy and Filament Wrasses.

Multicolor Lubbock's Fairy Wrasse

Cirrhilabrus lubbocki, Indonesia
The Multicolor Lubbock's Fairy Wrasse, Cirrhilabrus lubbocki
Description: The Tricolor Fairy Wrasse is a great schooling fairy wrasse. Beautiful colors and easy feeding requirements make this fairy wrasse a good choice for both beginners and advanced aquarists alike. These are extremely colorful small, peaceful "pseudo-schooling" fish that could easily be used in many reef tanks instead of more aggressive anthias species. They can be found in large groups around reefs. They seem to have an affinity for finely branched corals and rubble. Max size is about 3" but they are more commonly seen in the 1.5" - 2" range. When kept in small groups or singly, they also make great nano tank additions. They are hardy and reef safe. The males tend to have more vivid and striking color patterns than the females.

Tank Recommendations: The maximum adult size is around 3 inches. We recommend keeping in a tank of at least 75 gallons in size. A 2-3 inch sand bed so they can bury themselves in the sand to sleep or hide. Live Rock should be provided for all Fairy and Filament Wrasses.

Naoko's Fairy Wrasse, Terminal Phase Male
Cirrhilabrus naokoae
Naoko's Fairy Wrasse, Terminal Phase Male, Cirrhilabrus naokoae
First described by Dr. Hiroyuki Tanakain January 2009, this fish is a real beauty. Factoid: This fish is named after Hiroyuki Tanaka's wife.

Description: The rare (and some would say ULTRA-RARE) Naoko's Fairy Wrasse is a reef-associated wrasse currently only known to be around Indonesia and Sumatra. First described by Jack Randall and Dr. Hiroyuki Tanaka in January 2009, this is a fairly peaceful wrasse that is both active and hardy. Cirrhilabrus naokoae is not an overly aggressive fish, and more than one may be kept in the same suitably large aquarium. Two males have been successfully kept together in the same aquarium by a number of aquarists. It is perfectly suitable to keep Cirrhilabrus naokoae with other fairy wrasses, as well as other peaceful community fishes. This fish is not a picky eater and should readily accept a variety of common foods including small pieces of marine flesh (e.g., table shrimp), frozen food, and flake and pellet foods.
Tank Recommendations: The maximum adult size is around 3 inches. We recommend keeping in a tank of at least 50 gallons in size. A 2-3 inch sand bed so they can bury themselves in the sand to sleep or hide. Live Rock should be provided for all Fairy and Filament Wrasses. The Live Rock provides numerous small life forms that the Wrasses consider a tasty treat as well as another place to hide when they feel threatened. Note: Wrasses are known to jump from aquariums.

Long Fin Fairy Wrasse, Cirrhilabrus rubriventralis

Description: It is commonly known as the Longfin Fairy Wrasse but is also known as the Blue and Red Fairy Wrasse and also as the Social Wrasse for its splendid behavior. Coloration of the Long Fin Fairy Wrasse does vary greatly so expect some variety in the color of the Long Fin. A marine fish from the genus Cirrhilabrus which is part of the Labridae family. Very beautiful and colorful, the Longfin Fairy has a mostly red body with orange belly and blue markings. Male Longfin Fairy Wrasses tend to be a lot more colorful than females. Longfin Fairy Wrasses reach a maximum adult size of around 3 inches. A peaceful fish, they should not bother other fish, coral or inverts in your tank. This makes the Longfin Fairy Wrasse a great addition to reef tanks.

Tank Recommendations: The maximum adult size is around 3 inches. We recommend keeping in a tank of at least 50 gallons in size. A 2-3 inch sand bed so they can bury themselves in the sand to sleep or hide. Live Rock should be provided for all Fairy and Filament Wrasses.

Blue Flasher Fairy Wrasse
Paracheilinus cyaneus (Indonesia)
Blue Flasher Fairy Wrasse, Paracheilinus cyaneus
Description: A newcomer to the aquarium trade and first described just 10 years ago, The Blue Flasher Wrasse is a wonderful reef fish that can be the highlight of a peaceful community or reef tank. A member of the Labridae family, the Blue Flasher Wrasse hails from Indonesia and resides in the Central Pacific, Derawan Island, Sulawesi and the Tongan Islands. They are one of the few wrasses who do well with small, passive marine fish, as they will encourage them to spend more time out of the rockwork. Males are most spectacular when they "flash" (display) toward other fishes or their reflections in the aquarium glass. They can be kept in groups and, in fact, in some cases they do best if a male and one or more females are kept together. One of the most rewarding things about keeping flasher wrasses in groups is that the males will display more. These colorful displays are important in courtship and defending females from neighboring rivals.

Tank Recommendations: The maximum adult size is around 3 inches. We recommend keeping in a tank of at least 50 gallons in size. A 2-3 inch sand bed so they can bury themselves in the sand to sleep or hide. Live Rock should be provided for all Fairy and Filament Wrasses.

Yellow Flanked Fairy Wrasse
Cirrhilabrus ryukyuensis
Yellow-Flanked Fairy Wrasse, Cirrhilabrus ryukyuensis
Description: The Yellow-Flanked Fairy Wrasse is also known as Blueside Fairy Wrasse. The Yellow Flanked Fairy Wrasse, Cirrhilabrus cyanopleura, is also known as the Blueside Wrasse and the Blueheaded Fairy Wrasse. These fish come from the Eastern Indian Ocean. Females have a reddish-orange body with a white belly. Males have a greenish-blue front half and a reddish back half with a yellow patch behind the pectoral fins. This is a species that seems to improve in the intensity of its coloration as it matures in the aquarium. It is one of the more aggressive fairy wrasses, and this, combined with its relatively large size and active nature, means it is best kept in larger tanks at least 90 gallons. When in the process of courting it is fairly easy to tell the difference because the male will display increased color intensities. A popular aquarium fish because of the strong coloration, the picture of this beauty does not do it justice. Of large importance to note, the Yellow Flanked Fairy Wrasse adapts better than many other fairy wrasses to captivity but still may need occassional live foods like brine shrimp or copepods till they gain a gusto for eating well.

Tank Recommendations: The maximum adult size is around 5 inches. We recommend keeping in a tank of at least 90 gallons in size. A 2-3 inch sand bed so they can bury themselves in the sand to sleep or hide. Live Rock should be provided for all Fairy and Filament Wrasses.

Labout's Fairy Wrasse
Cirrhilabrus laboutie, Australia
Yellow-Flanked Fairy Wrasse, Cirrhilabrus ryukyuensis
Description: The Laboute's Fairy Wrasse, Cirrhilabrus laboutei is native to the coral reefs of the Barier Reef to the coral reefs of New Caledonia and as far east as Vanuatu. Available sporaticaly in the aquarium trade the Cirrhilabrus laboutei has long been a favorite of aquarists, boasting an impressive mix of colors and patterns that few reef fishes can match. Mature males are colored purple dorsally, with a contrasting white belly. Along the sides are a series of stripes in teal, yellow and a much darker shade of purple. These form a sort of looped line above the pectoral fin. Both males and females have these stripes but the colors of the males are much more intense. Relatively easy to adapt in captivity the Labouti Fairy Wrasse will be shy upon introduction to your home aquarium but become more bold as time goes on and will then spend hours and hours moving about in the water column. If continually harassed they will hide and refuse to eat. If you will be keeping more than one Laboutei in your tank add all the females and other fairy wrasses first because doing it any other way the male Labouti Fairy Wrasse may behave aggressively to the new introductions.

Tank Recommendations: The maximum adult size is around 5 inches. We recommend keeping in a tank of at least 90 gallons in size. A 2-3 inch sand bed so they can bury themselves in the sand to sleep or hide. Live Rock should be provided for all Fairy and Filament Wrasses.

This will provide a constant food supply of small live foods (e.g. copepods). Easily adjusts to captive diet. Feed a varied diet consisting of finely chopped chunks of meaty foods. These foods include krill, raw table shrimp, squid, clam and mussel. It is also a good idea to occasionally supplement with some type of herbivore diet. For frozen aquarium foods we suggest vitamin enriched frozen mysis shrimp, vitamin enriched frozen brine shrimp, and other meaty foods along with a high quality marine flake and marine pellet food.

Sailfin Fairy Wrasse
Cirrhilabrus sp.

Long Fin Fairy Wrasse, Cirrhilabrus rubriventralis

Description: The Sailfin Fairy Wrasse is a newly found (2016) species of Fairy Wrasse , restricted to portions of the Coral Triangle that see relatively little collection and exploration. They have a pretty remarkable body shape and finnage. It has a large and flowing dorsal fin that is mostly red with purple accents, two large red pectoral fins, a large red caudal fin lined in purple, and a beautiful purple-striped red anal fin. On top of these beautiful colors, the Sailfin Fairy Tang has a deep electric blue directly under its chin. All of these characteristics were originally thought to be mutations, variations, or hybrids of existing fairy wrasse species but more and more specimens are being found and making their way to the US aquarium trade making it more likely that the Sailfin Fairy Wrasse is a unique species. The precise biogeographic range of the Sailfin Fairy Wrasse remains to be determined, though it appears to be restricted to the southern reefs of Mindanao, through the Makassar Strait separating Borneo from Sulawesi and south to Bali, where it is apparently quite uncommon.

Tank Recommendations: The maximum adult size is around 3 inches. We recommend keeping in a tank of at least 50 gallons in size. A 2-3 inch sand bed so they can bury themselves in the sand to sleep or hide. Live Rock should be provided for all Fairy and Filament Wrasses.

   ReefPods™ Tisbe by AlgaGen
AlgaGen ReefPods™ Tisbe
Excellent food for Mandarins, Blennies, Gobies, Seahorses, and many other finicky eating fish

ReefPods™ Tisbe the most popular aquarium Pod -they consumes your aquarium’s wastes and detritus, reproduce well, and are food for a multitude of reef inhabitants!

ReefPods™ Tisbe is a live culture of the harpacticoid copepod Tisbe biminiensis. Tisbe adult copepods live on bottom substrate such as live rock or sand and will eat detritus and microalage in the aquarium. They produce a small nauplii which is an excellent food for aquarium filter feeders and fish larvae. The adults are eaten by small bottom feeding fish such as gobies, dragonettes and blennies.

ReefPods™ Tisbe may be used as a starter culture to add to marine aquarium refugiums or the main tank. Once established they will reproduce quickly, growing from nauplii to adults in about nine days. They will thrive in a wide range of aquarium temperatures and a wide range of salinities. It is suggested they be added to the aquarium at night or to the refugium to avoid immediate fish predation.

Tisbe is an excellent all purpose aquarium copepod owing to its role in the natural environment as a detritivore. An opportunist feeder, Tisbe can be used as a tank cleaner consuming uneaten food and wastes as well as phytoplankton in the tank and refugium. Tisbe is capable of producing many eggs during its adult life span that hatch into nauplii which will enter the water column as food for your filter feeding reef inhabitants and replenish the adult population vital to tank hygiene. Tisbe adults and juveniles may also enter the water column and be tasty and nutritious treats for your reef fish!
