Cirrhilabrus nahackyi. Recently discovered in 2010 by Tony Nahacky in waters over 100ft. Nahacky's Fairy Wrasse, identified by an elongated first dorsal spine that whips back toward the caudal fin, compared to Cirrhilabrus sp. Color patterns range greatly among variants, splashing Nahacky's Fairy Wrasse in vibrant yellows, blacks, oranges, purples, and white/pale blue. Nahacky's Fairy Wrasse draws close similarities to Cirrhilabrus bathyphilus from Vanuatu, but is suspected to be a separate species. It is a very peaceful, active fish that will bring both color and activity to a fish-only or reef aquarium of 125 gallons or larger. They will not bother any corals or invertebrates making them a perfect fish for the reef aquarium. These wrasses like to jump, so a tight-fitting canopy is recommended. The Nahacky's Fairy Wrasse diet should include vitamin enriched frozen mysis shrimp, vitamin enriched frozen brine shrimp, and other meaty foods along with a high quality marine flake and marine pellet food.
