    I would still utilize a social acclimation box to introduce it.

    They are in QT together right now.

    Also how do you know it is a yellowfin? It only have one thing sticking up from his fin, just trying to understand and make sure I do not have two mccoskers

    This guy is beautiful. Thinking of adding him to our tank. Do you foresee any issues with the other wrasses we have in our tank? The other wrasses we have are a Bluestreak Cleaner Wrasse (Labroides dimidiatus), Ruby Head Fairy Wrasse (Cirrhilabrus cf cyanopleura), Exquisite Fairy Wrasse (Cirrhilabrus exquisitus), Ruby Longfin fairy wrasse, (Cirrhilabrus rubeus) and Yellow wrasse (halichoeres chrysus).

    The rubyhead is a closely related species, so there may be increased aggression.

    I'm thinking it may not be a good idea to add. Darn LFS keeps bringing in different wrasses because he knows how much I love them. Happy I check here first before purchasing. Thanks again.

    Looks like Halichoeres chrysotaenia, but I would need to see the tail.
