The Bathyphilus Hooded Fairy Wrasse has breathtaking colorations, hardiness and high activity levels, making them very desirable in aquariums. This peaceful fish can be added to just about any aquariums since they are not known to eat or damage corals. Hooded wrasses can mix well with others as long as they are females (most at medium size or smaller will be) and introduced at the same time to the aquarium. For continued health, give a varied diet of small meaty foods. Feeding them multiple times a day is recommended since they are very active. They have a small adult size of 4" which is another reason why they are so desirable. Beware: They are jumpers, so a covered aquarium is necessary. This deep-water species is predominately yellow and red with hints of black on their fins which is why they are called Flame Fairies. The Hooded Wrasse is found in the Western Pacific within coral reefs up to 200 meters deep.

ACCLIMATION: Avoid exposing new aquatic life to bright lights after opening the box. Turn off aquarium lights prior to floating aquatic life. Allow the sealed bag with your new fish to float in your aquarium for at least 15 minutes (but no longer than one hour) to ensure the water in the bag matches the temperature in your aquarium. A bacteria booster addition can assist with the addition of new aquatic life. Petco offers free water testing in store to determine if your water is safe for the addition of new aquatic life. DIET: A well-balanced diet consists of a variety of flakes, pellets, freeze-dried and frozen foods, depending on the species. FEEDING: Feed sparingly and no more than fish can eat in 1-2 minutes. Overfeeding can quickly foul the water, especially in smaller aquariums.
