The Diamond Tail Flasher (Paracheilinus attenuatus)

Diamond Tail Flasher Wrasse (Paracheilinus attenuatus), among the best ornamental fish for home aquariums due to attractiveness and being reef-safe.

The male Diamond Tail Flasher Wrasse is vibrantly colored and is predominantly red/orange in coloration with blue, horizontal stripes that complement its yellow stomach. The multi-colored dorsal fin is accented with red, yellow, and blue coloration and features a single elongated ray. A gorgeous, red band across the anal fin enhances its bold and impressive color palette. The caudal, or tail fin, is flashy in color and diamond shaped. The female Diamond Tail Flasher Wrasse is more subdued in coloration and overall appearance with smaller fins.

The Diamond Tail Flasher Wrasse requires an established 55 gallon (or larger) aquarium with a tight-fitting lid since it is a jumper. In the wild, the Diamond Tail Flasher Wrasse are often found along reef slopes and rubble zones where they swim near the bottom and forming small groups in which the male swims back and forth between groups of females. The colors of an adult male intensifies during courtship and he may flare or “flash” his fins to attract females. We recommend only one male per aquarium display.

The diet of the Diamond Tail Flasher Wrasse should include vitamin enriched frozen mysis shrimp, brine shrimp, and other meaty foods along with a high quality marine flake and marine pellet food.

Approximate Purchase Size: Transitioning: 1″ to 2″ Initial Phase Male: 2″ to 3″; Terminal Phase: 3″ – 4″; Juvenile: Small: 1-1/2″ to 2″; Medium: 2″ to 3″.

Tips for keeping Angelfish

It is possible to keep various different sizes of Angelfish in the same aquarium, but it means that one must choose species with care and that the conditions in the tank are optimum.

Here are some suggestions to increase the chances of success:

Choice of species
It is important not to choose species that are too similar, the greater the variance, the larger the chance of success. It is also advantageous to choose fish of different sizes. Two young Angelfish of the same same size and pattern for example are a bad idea. One should of course avoid the most aggressive species.

Order of introduction
It is a good idea to make a wishlist and choosing the order so, that the least aggressive are introduced first. When adding similar sized Ange fish it works best if they are introduced simultaneously.

Space
There should be enough space in the aquarium, but it is difficult to give specific advice. Of course there are exceptions to the table below as to just how big a tank should be in order to stand a good chance of success. Space itself is not enough, there should also be sufficient hiding places so the fish do not have to fight over these.

100 gal (400 liters): Several small Angelfish (<15cm) can live together.

240 gal (900 liters): Several medium Angelfish (< 20cm) can live together.

400 gal (1500 liters): Several large Angelfish (<25cm) can live together.

Food and water quality
It is always helpful to give the fish a varied diet, so they can withstand the occasional stress situation when for example new fish are introduced. Water quality must also be very high, so that the fish do not get stressed for that reason either.

Corals suitable for an aquarium with Angelfish

It can be a challenge to keep corals together with Angelfish, since the latter eat most soft corals and LPS. Especially Zoathus are swiftly eaten by the larger species.

It is however possible to build up a mixed coral aquarium with Angelfish. If some of the following corals are choosen there is a good chance the Angelfish will leave them alone; Hammer corals, Bubble corals, Star polyps, Disc anemones and others.
Most of the SPS corals can be kept with Angelfish.
