This Girdled Fairy Wrasse is an ideal choice for any reef aquarium, as it is peaceful, active, and highly colorful. Its reef-safe characteristics make it an excellent addition to the tank, as it will not bother any corals or invertebrates. Furthermore, a single male can be kept with a group of females if they are introduced simultaneously. To ensure its safety, it is important to install a tight-fitting canopy as this wrasse has a tendency to jump. All in all, this fish is a great option for any marine aquarium.

The Girdled Fairy Wrasse diet should include vitamin-enriched frozen mysis shrimp, vitamin-enriched frozen brine shrimp, and other meaty foods such as krill, mussels, and other seafoods. A high-quality marine flake and marine pellet food should be fed to supplement this diet. Additionally, to ensure proper nutrition, live rock with a plentiful and diverse selection of algae should be present. This will provide an excellent natural source of food for the wrasse. Furthermore, fresh fruits and vegetables can be offered to the wrasse as a treat.
