Filamented Flasher Wrasse (Paracheilinus filamentosus)


The Filamented Flasher Wrasse will erect its fins and dash around the aquarium like a kite is a strong wind. During this display, the colors also intensify. When it is not trying to impress its tankmates, it will slowly scull about the tank looking for food in the water column and may occasionally pick a morsel off the aquarium bottom. One male per tank with one or more females recommended. Females do not have the filaments on the dorsal fin. Flasher wrasses will not harm invertebrates.



The Filamented Flasher Wrasse diet consists of meaty food and can be fed with live feeder shrimps and flake foods.
