Ruby head fairy wrasse, Cirrhilabrus cf. cyabopleura.
Great Thank you
Couldn' resist and got another. Should be an easy one for you is the white marking on the nose normal?
It is in a younger exquisite. This one looks like he's from somewhere near Africa.
Wonderful fish, and high on my list!
I was thinking it was from Fiji based on pictures I've seen, either way they'e all beautiful
Bruce is right, Indian ocean exquisite wrasse. The white on the nose is common.
Its a male, correct?
Cirrhilabrus flavidorsalis, yellow fin fairy
I have flipped through many of the pages on this forum and I have not seen this one yet.
I apologize if its a duplicate
The Local Fish Store is selling at a West African Rainbow Wrasse
Is it reef friendly
It's a female in the lubbocki complex. All females in this complex are near identical. Exact species can be pinpointed when it begins to transition.
C. cf. cyanopleura, Ruby head wrasse.
Perhaps, though it could be any female in the lubbocki complex.
It is a true coris species. Semi aggressive and will eat motile inverts.
Can I put a yellow coris wrasse with my Naoko’s fairy and Solon fairy?
The Naoko's in particular has a bit of a reputation for aggression. It may help that the yellow "coris" is a Halichoeres and not a fairy. Use a social acclimation box to help "test the waters" prior to releasing the yellow.
Thank you. The coris is in a acclimation box now. So far no aggression from any of them. I’ll give it a week or so in the box.
I bet it will be fine. I've never had a fairy take exception to a Halichoeres but those are a couple of more aggressive fairies that I haven't kept. You will enjoy the H. crysus. Beautiful fish with a very mild attitude....or at least mine was.
One of my new additions. No ID needed, just wanted to show her off. Female ornate leopard
OK I know what my little 1" baby is, but thought I'd share as they change so much as they mature
And just trying to determine male or female?
