    Pretty confident in what it is, Paracheilinus lineopunctatus. Just looking for expert confirmation. Received from LADD today. Looking healthy and adjusting to QT nicely.

    Cebu Cirrhilabrus lubbocki. It's pretty peaceful, can be kept with most other reef safe wrasses.

    C. Lunate, or C. CF Lunate?

    Purchased as a male, but I think it was a female and he's transitioning to male now.

    Also, here's a fun one! (I no longer have, he was waaay aggressive in my tank)

    C. cf. lunatus, definitely a male now.

    C. katoi. They are certainly on the aggressive side for fairy wrasses.

    hey guys i found this thread after listening to Hunter Hammond's lecture on Macna 2017 about wrasses. I am interested in a wrasse known as Orange head Wrasse. I am not sure what its scientific name is and whether it is different than the Lubbock's Fairy Wrasse (they both appear to be very similar). I already have a Lubbock Fairy Wrasse and if the Orange head is similar to Lubbock than i would skip to buy it. Unfortunately i do not have a picture now but i can get one later on. Thanks.

    Definitely get a pic. There are a few fish that could go by that name. They should be fine with a lubbocki, but a positive id will help.

    H is C. rubrisquamis. That chart is from Lemon, it's 100% correct.

    That's what started the miscommunication with my LFS! I thought the second "H" is the C. Claire (look at the description beneath the photo.. there's two H's). It's the one I thought my LFS was getting because I thought the H in the image was male/female version of C. Claire.

    Apparently the description H is supposed to be I, and the I is hidden in the C. Claire box (white text on white? come on, I didn't even see that! lol).

    The H in the images didn't look like the Rosy Scale I have and got me curious if the chart was incorrect

    The rubrisquamis is in a nuptial display, and it flashes it's body pale/white during those displays.

    I'm still learning! I didn't know that, lol. It just looked so different than what I have.
