Cirrhilabrus rubeus, ruby longfin wrasse, male.
hoping to get an ID on this guy? LFS told me it was a Temmincki but I'm thinking maybe C. cyanopleura maybe?
Looks like a transitioning C. cf. cyanopleura, ruby head wrasse, to me.
Thanks TJ @eatbreakfast . i recently added a P. carpenteri without an acclimation box , against my better judgement (and my wife's) and the Rubyhead has been showing aggression towards it. Is this possibly due to it transitioning ? Carpenter has only been in there a week now and was hiding the first 3 days. Do you think this is a typical josting for dominance or will the rubyhead continue to bully it? Rubyhead is easily 4 times bigger than the Carpenter. i wouldn't have figured their to be aggression between the two but i won't pretend to be an expert on this subject.
If the carpenter wrasse is coming out then I wouldn't worry. The rubyhead will always show a degree of dominance, but as long as it isn't relentless, it's nothing to be concerned with.
Ok great. i appreciate the help!
any chance of and id on this
Need some help here folks. Can anyone tell me what this is? I’ll tell/show you what it was listed as after we get a possitive ID. Is it a Parrot Fish? All i see are those teeth!!
Have 2 of these, were labeled misc fairy wrasse at the wholesaler.
Didn't watch much of the video but looks like a princess parrot.
So oddly enough, the Parrot I received today was supposed to be a Temminkii fairy! @tgionet got my fish!! LoL
I blame Fish Mart
You got a beauty!
Fishmart usually has them correctly listed. Their stock on saltwater is pretty limited, so there isn't much to mess up.
Hi! I'm back; what'd I miss?
(Welcomes self back to own thread)
Nah, that's temminckii in muted coloration. Check the pelvic fin length.
2 together will be a problem.
Glad you're back Hunter!
