The Rubrisquamis Wrasse is a beautiful, reef-safe fairy wrasse with the front half of it body being a vibrant red. This transitions into orange as you move towards the back of the fish. The caudal fin will color up to purple. This fish should be housed with other peaceful fish, and fed meaty frozen foods. Feed Arctic Pods or Calanus to really make this fish's color pop. Make sure the tank has a lid as this fish can be jumpy.
