    Thank you, it unfortunately arrived in awful shape and died already (less then 12 hours) but LA has great customer service and are sending me a replacement free tomorrow for Thursday arrival, really hoping this one arrives in good shape.

    One question I have, I mostly have been tangs and triggers in my DT so the custom food (raw shrimp, brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, octopus, squid, clams) I make for them is bigger chunks and the wrasse in the QT are having a hard time with it. Do you suggest just feed them small brine and mysis shrimp?

    Sorry it died. But yes, they will need food a little smaller, such as enriched brine or hikari mysis.
    Baldguy nailed it.

    Thanks thats what i told guy at the lfs. I was looking for a melanarus but he told me he didnt have any but he had a few "ornate" wrasses. I tried to google ornate wrasse any found a pic of an adorned wrasse on liveaquaria but he told me the reason it looked like that was becuase it had not colored up yet. Will this be its final color? Its has more reds and greens in it in person because of all the blue lights. Thanks again :)

    I didn’t order a yellow fin either. But that’s what I got lol!

    On the wrasse below. Melanarus or Chrysotaenia? Sold to me as a melanarus.

    Does it have a red margin on the anal fin? How many dorsal filaments does it have.

    This is one of the best pictures I could get.

    hoping the big wrasse isnt the same as the small one behind it
