Blueside Fairy Wrasse
The Bluehead Fairy Wrasse, also known as the Blue Scaled Fairy Wrasse, Yellow Flanked Fairy Wrasse, Purplehead Parrot Wrasse, or Blue Sided Fairy Wrasse, can have a varying coloration ranging from red and blue to deep maroon and deep blue, often with a pale underside. This species has been commonly mistaken for the Yellow Flanked Wrasse, and may differ only in coloration based on their locale. The Bluehead Fairy Wrasse is a great addition to a reef aquarium, bringing both color and activity to the tank. They can coexist with other Cirrhilabrus species if introduced simultaneously. To ensure a healthy diet, the Bluehead Fairy Wrasse should be fed vitamin-enriched frozen mysis and brine shrimp, as well as other meaty foods. A high-quality marine flake and pellet food can also be given.
