Spawning Flame Wrasses


Here is a video of the courtship display and mating of the flame fairy wrasse, Cirrhilabrus jordani. These gorgeous fish are endemic to Hawaiian waters and are pretty rare in the aquarium world (hence their price). But the owner of this aquarium has a male with a harem of females, which have successfully mated in this aquarium. The mating itself is rather quick, so keep an eye out for it.
