    It's a female Cirrhilabrus in the rubripinnis complex of species. Either rubeus, joanallenae, or africanus.
    Bathyphilus of efatensis.

    Yes, their care and behavior is comparable to a small leopard wrasse.

    Hi Eatbreakfast I have a question about my wrasse that maybe you can help me with. On page 147 you helped me identify my wrasse. Since putting him in he has only come out a few times. He is alive and wedged into a hole in the rock. He has not come out in about 7 days, should i be worried??? I can see his fins flick back and forth sometimes. I know they can hide just wondering how long i should wait it out. Thanks
    Scott

    To me that sounds as though there is a bully in the tank. For the most part wrasses should be outgoing.

    It looks to be a young twistii to me. Facial shape is Anampses, and the ocelli are pretty telling.
