The Debelius Fairy Wrasse (Cirrhilabrus adornatus, also known as the Redfin or Koi Fairy Wrasse) is relatively new to the aquarium trade, collected and known only from a small region in Indonesia. Males are distinguished by their pale pink body marked with two bright red blotches in the dorsal region behind the head. The dorsal fin is edged in bright red as well, and the face is tinted with yellow. Fairy Wrasses (Cirrhilabrus sp.) and Flasher Wrasses (Paracheilinus sp.) have a generally placid temperament and tolerate most tankmates, provided that they have plenty of places to escape to and hide to feel secure.
