    Do Katoi have blue throats?

    I adjusted the photos to make the blue throat clearer. Katoi does look similar outside of the bright blue throat visible on one. The picture you can see it’s blue throat a bit better on these new ones. I was guessing bluethroat sailfin, but it doesn’t have the sailfin topfin.

    Specimens of katoi do have varying degrees of blue on the throat.

    There is a median stripe on the dorsal fin that reaches all the way to the front of the dorsal on the specimen pictured. In the blue throat sailfin dorsal markings are limited to the back half of the dorsal.

    Thank you! I knew they weren't Cirrhilabrus isosceles, but I wasn't familiar with this type.

    This was at my LFS as a "pintail."

    It obviously isn't a lanceolatus. ;-) I'm thinking it might be a C. squirei?? I'm going to try for better pictures this week, but I'm curious what you think:

    Cool, thanks! His dorsal and tail fins do have a tinge of blue to them, but not much....so perhaps young male. He's going into a tank with a Lineatus, Bipartitus, Rhomboid, Radiant, and Velvet. But he's not going to be introduced alone....i have a Midas Blenny who will be coming out of qt at the same time.

    I was wondering if you can help me with ID of this wrasse. It is purple with a little bit of yellow on its nose and you can see in photo that it has small white dots along its side fish1.jpg fish2.jpg . When lights are on.
