The Rhomboid Wrasse (Cirrhilabrus Rhomboidalis), also known as the Diamond-tail Fairy Wrasse, originates solely from the Marshall Islands.
They are gold in color with a vibrant blue head. Their entire body is marked with a maze-like series of lines, and their tale is diamond in shape. This is one of the truly beautiful and unfortunately rare species in the industry.
The Rhomboid 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.
They are for the most part very peaceful, but in some cases can be aggressive to closely related species. Add the largest males last, if one wants to keep multiple species together. They will not bother corals or invertebrates, making them an ideal fish for the reef aquarium.
The Rhomboid 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. Feeding them multiple times a day is recommended since they are very active.
