The red-eyed wrasse, Cirrhilabrus solorensis, is a species of wrasse native to Indonesia and Christmas Island,[1] though claims have been made of a wider distribution. It inhabits coral reefs on coastal and outer reef lagoons at depths of 5 to 35 m (16 to 115 ft). It can reach a total length of 11 cm (4.3 in).[2] It can be found in the aquarium trade.[1]

It occurs in small harems of one male, several females and juveniles.[3]
