The Clown Fairy Wrasse (Cirrhilabrus solorensis) is also known as the Tricolor Fairy Wrasse, Redheaded Fairy Wrasse, or Red Head Solon Fairy Wrasse. Some aquarists consider it to be another color form of the Blueside Wrasse (Cirrhilabrus cyanopleura).
The Clown Fairy Wrasse has a blue body with bright red running along the dorsal edge and a shining yellow-orange face. Colors may vary to other blues and purples depending on the fish's mood. When courting, the male will display an increased color intensity. Clown Fairy Wrasse can grow up to 11 cm what is approximately 4 inches.
These are extremely active fish and require ample space for their natural behaviour. The Clown Fairy Wrasse will thrive in either a fish-only or reef aquarium of 90 gallons or larger. It needs a shaded area away from the bright lights. These wrasse like to jump, so a tight fitting canopy is recommended.
This fish does best when kept with other peaceful tankmates. They will not bother corals or invertebrates, making them an ideal fish for the reef aquarium. The females should be introduced first, and then add only one male per aquarium. They can be kept with other species of wrasses.
As with other wrasse, they are protogynous (female first) hermaphrodites — starting out as females and changing when conditions permit.
The Clown Fairy Wrasse diet should include 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.
