    Fairy Wrasse Acting oddly

    My new Fairy wrasse is swimming on his side and not moving much. He had bubbles and mucus coming out of his gills earlier today but that stopped and he had a long white poo. I don't know if he has parasites or a spinal injury or if this is normal. He's my first wrasse. Anyone know what's going on?

    Need help determining whether or not this Red Finned Fairy Wrasse (Cirrhilabrus rubripinnis) is a male or female. I got as many pics as I could, but it's a wrasse. It moves. Fast. So several came out blurry even though it looked fine as I snapped the phone. These are the best ones I had. I...

    Super thin c. brunneus

    I somehow overlooked how thin this guy was at the store due to my excitement of finding him. Got home and put him in the acclimation bucket and was shocked.

    All About Reef Safe Wrasses in Aquaria

    Introduction My name is Hunter and I am a wrasse addict. Admitting such is the first step to buying another wrasse, I think. Wrasses are not only my passion, but my niche in this hobby since 2010. My tank is full of them, and unfortunately “regular” species are no longer exciting enough for...
