    I can't remember for sure. I just remember it was much more than I had remembered them selling for.

    Pretty sure you're thinking of piscilineatus? Different species.

    Not necessarily too sweet. They can be pretty aggressive with other fairy and flasher wrasses.

    Which Halichoeres is this? The fish store said Melanurus, but it lacks distinct striping on the back, it's faint.

    Sorry to hear that Hunter, next time get one from us. If i get them again that is..
    I believe all three that i sent out are doing well except one that i heard jumped out of a small gap in back of tank :(
    FYI i had the second wave of them.

    Here's another one for you guys, also Halichoeres. This one has a few iridescent golden stripes running along the body's length.

    Hey wrasse gurus.... would you consider giving both common and scientific names together for those of us following along and trying to memorize both...
    It would help I think...
    JMO. Ty in advance for considering it...

    Thank you! I was trying to tag you also but it wasn't working. How big will this guy grow, I can't seem to find any information, probably barely over 2 inches currently.
