    After this fish finishes qt, I would like to add a 3rd flasher. Currently have a paracheilinus lineopunctatus in the display. I'd like a mccoskers or angulatus. (Or both?)

    Would one or the other be better, or would another flasher species be better to add?

    54g tank, 36x20x21

    I wish fish stores near me sold fairys and flashers for $17. Minimum here would be about $60.

    Angulatus would be more different than lineopunctatus and flavianalis, so will probably fit in a little better.

    Just got this wrasse from my LFS. All they knew was female fairy. Anyone got a positive ID on it?

    I thought it was too colorful to be a female. And for $20 I wasn't going to walk out the store without it. Thanks guys.

    A Pacific Ocean exquisite wrasse, probably from the Philippines. Should do fine with 4 Halichoeres, depending on the species. But definitely use a social acclimation box.

    I have a wrasse that I got from my LFS and they were not even sure what it was. It was shipped to them by mistake. So far I have not been able to identify what type of wrasse it is. Wrasse.jpg
