    Cirrhilabrus lubbocki, "multicolor" Lubbock's fairy wrasse. A smaller species, generally fairly well-behaved. The red/blue alternating blotches are his excited color - at rest, that'll ease to an overall violet color, usually with a scattering of pinkish scales.

    Japanese Cirrhilabrus lanceolatus I believe. They where both under the same name but for the pintail they added cf. to it. But now the pintail has it own ID.

    Hope I got all that correct

    Greenstreet is correct. Cirrhilabrus cf. lanceolatous got it's own name, C. isosceles. Your pic is C. lanceolatous (no cf.) found in Japan and sometimes the Phillipines. Cf means confer. Think of it as "similar to".

    Thankyou. I think different countries may have different nicknames/colloquisms (sp?) which doesn't make it easier!

    What about this guy. Sold to me as a McCosker but obviously isn't to me. He is new in my conditioning tank and is still stressed.

    Just out of curiosity, what has happened to @evolved? I don't spend a lot of time here anymore, but I see that he has not been active here in several months?

    He has been busy with work and his local club. He says he will be back soon, but hasn't given a time table.
