    It is in a younger exquisite. This one looks like he's from somewhere near Africa.

    Wonderful fish, and high on my list!

    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.
