Marked as "Fairy Wrasse"...
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.
Can someone post a pic of Cirrhilabrus cf. Lanceolatous?
Now officially Cirrhilabrus isosceles
So cirrhilabrus cf. lanceolatous is now C. Isosceles?
What is this fish then?
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".
Thanks so much!
Hi. Hoping you guys can help. This is marked as flame fin fairy wrasse but doesn't match any pics I can see. Is it? If not what is it please. TIA
Black fin fairy wrasse, Cirrhilabrus melanomarginatus. Here is a specimen I had about 5 years ago.
Thankyou. I think different countries may have different nicknames/colloquisms (sp?) which doesn't make it easier!
And then online searches show images such as this which also doesn't help! Thankyou for the I'D.
P. Cyaneus? At LFS and a little stressed
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.
Carpenter's flasher wrasse, Paracheilinus carpenteri
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?
Paracheilinus flavianalis. The anal fin is yellow, in carpenteri it is orange and red.
He has been busy with work and his local club. He says he will be back soon, but hasn't given a time table.
