The Rhomboid Golden Fairy Wrasse (Cirrhilabrus Rhomboidalis) is a species of wrasse endemic to the Marshall Islands, where it is only known from Kwajalein Atoll.
The Rhomboid Golden Fairy Wrasse is a spectacular fish with glittering scales of precious gold and lavender and bright amber eyes. Males have deep purple heads with intricate scrawling and, as the name implies, pointed rhomboid shaped tails. Some specimens develop into super males whose scales shimmer with even more golden hue. Females are peach colored with dark scrawling on their faces. The males can reach up to 10 centimetres in length, while females are smaller, growing up to 8 centimetres long.
The Golden Rhomboidalis Wrasse will thrive in either a fish-only or reef aquarium of 90 gallons or larger. The Golden Rhomboidalis Wrasse should be kept in an aquarium with a thick, sandy bottom and plenty of rocks to provide enough hiding place if needed. It needs a shaded area away from the bright lights. These wrasse like to jump, so a tight fitting canopy is recommended.
They live best in pairs rather than alone, so it is advisable that you keep them with another member of their species. They do not appreciate living with other species of wrasse, so any aquarium with several species must be large enough and the most peaceful species added first. They are safe with most invertebrates except small shrimp and crabs. They do not bother corals or anemones. It is a peaceful wrasse and will get along with most fish.
The Golden Rhomboidalis 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.
