Husbandry

This beautyful wrasse lives in deep muddy descents, most in a group of juveniles with one dominant male.
Meets with other Cirrhilabrus or Paracheilinus above the substrate for eating. Like all Cirrhilabrus, they change their colour very quickly during courtship. - Very nice.
Very rarely to find; and if, not in good condition.

Seit ca. 5 Monaten ein Männchen in einem 420 L-Becken. Vergesellschaftet unter anderem mit 1,1 Centropyge bispinosa, 2,1 Parachelinus flaviannalis, 2,2 Zoramia leptacantha, 1,1 Labroides dimidiatus. Das Männchen hat sich gut eingewöhnt und frisst alles angebotene Futter (Frostfutter: Artemia, Mysis, rote/schwarze/weiße Mückenlarven, Bosmiden, Cyclops, Flockenfutter, Norialgenstücke). Vor allem nach der Fütterung jagt es die kleineren P. flaviannalis und zeigt wunderschöne Prachtfärbung.
