The Earle's Fairy Wrasse is a stunning and extremely rare species of fairy wrasse discovered in the waters of Palau in 2001. This rare gem displays an overall pink and orange coloration with purple horizontal stripes, a purple tail, and yellow near the head and belly.     

Care

The Earle's Fairy Wrasse grows to 4-5 inches, and requires a tank of 50 gallons or more. For such a rare and expensive species, care is surprisingly easy, and is no more difficult than other cirrhilabrus fairy wrasse. They should be kept in a tank with plenty of rockwork to provide hiding spots and space to graze copepods and amphipods. This peaceful and reef safe species will generally do well in a typical mixed reef community tank, and may be kept with other fairy wrasse.     

Diet

Earle's Fairy Wrasse are carnivorous, and should be fed a diet rich in protein consisting of frozen mysis shrimp and other meaty frozen seafood blends.
