This species of wrasse can display territorial behavior when kept with other Cirrhilabrus or Paracheilinus wrasse, so it is important to research compatible tank mates before adding them to a tank. In addition, these wrasses are also known to jump, so it is important to ensure that the aquarium has a tight fitting canopy. With a minimum tank size of 55 gallons, the Whip Fin Wrasse is an excellent choice for any marine aquarist.
