    Yes, C. africanus. All the juvies/females in the rubriventralis complex have those stripes.
    Bruce is spot on with everything he said about scottorum.

    It's a male Mckoskers wrasse, Paracheilinus mckoskeri. If the tail is black it is from Africa.

    Not an ID question, but what are the going rates for Cirrhilabrus naokoae nowadays?

    Can anyone tell me what she is? Sold as a “common” fairy wrasse. I’ll get better pics once she’s in the tank.
