    Just wanted to share a stunning animal with everyone. We special ordered this beauty and it is currently performing some quantum physics calculations in our holding tank to see if he can find a way out. This is a male Cirrhilabrus isosceles, also known as the Pintail Fairy Wrasse. Those of you who know me, know that I'm a wrasse fanatic. If I could keep one of every kind in my tank, I would.. This particular wrasse is a very inquisitive, and methodical little creature and I have completely fallen in love. They are collected in the Northern Philippines.

    Here are a few poor shots that I took quickly this morning. Enjoy!

    That is one beautiful fishy.

    My LFS has had one for almost 3 months.
    You're making me want to open my wallet.

    This one doesn't seem skidish at all. He's more interested in figuring you out. Love it
