The Filament Flasher Wrasse, Paracheilinus filamentosus, goes by many different common names including the Filamented Flasher Wrasse, Filament-fin Wrasse, Filamentous Wrasse, Whip-Fin Fairy Wrasse, and Filamentous Flasher Wrasse. Clearly, this wrasse is characterized by its extraordinary filamentous appendages extending from its dorsal fin. Sometimes extending two inches from its body, this filamentous tissue is unique to this species of wrasse.
The Filament Flasher Wrasse is also flashy in color. Featuring a neon orange/red color with scattered blue/purple striping, this wrasse lives up to its lofty name.
This wrasse makes a wonderful tank mate as it is peaceful with other fish, corals, and inverts. It is best housed in a tank of at least 50 gallons, with plenty of free swimming space, live rocks to hide in, a sandy substrate, and a tightly sealed lid to prevent escapes. They can be kept in mated pairs, but the females should be introduced to the tank first.
The Filament Flasher Wrasse will eat a carnivorous diet consisting of varied meaty foods including brine and mysis shrimp, crab and clam meat. They will also take a herbivorous diet of flake foods.
