The Brunneus Fairy Wrasse, Cirrhilabrus brunneus, also known as
the Dusky Fairy Wrasse, Brunneus Wrasse, is an extremely rare wrasse
species with an even more rare and unique coloration. Most species in
the Fairy Wrasse genus Cirrhilabrus exhibit bright, neon, and
vibrant colors. The Brunneus Fairy Wrasse is an incredibly exception.
Sometimes described as "dark" or "sinister" looking the Brunneus Fairy
Wrasse exhibits incredible dark blues, reds, blacks and browns to form a
spectacular dark and colorful fairy wrasse.
The Brunneus Fairy
Wrasse is best kept in a tank with a sandy substrate, plenty of live
rock, and plenty of swimming space. The lid of the tank should be
tightly secured to prevent jumping. They can be kept in pairs but should
not be mixed with other species of wrasse. The Brunneus Fairy Wrasse
will eat a omnivorous diet consisting of brine and mysis shrimp as well
as other meaty foods and quality flake or pellet foods.
the Brunneus Fairy Wrasse is unlike any other wrasse on the market
today. Its bold and dark colors give off a unique vibe that would fit
great with so many home aquariums. This is one cool fish.
