Looks good! Just added a female to my DT. She stands out with all the other red/orange/yellow wrasse I have. She was totally left alone after I removed her from the box.
Thats great to hear! Its so hard buying juvenile wrasses with all sharing similar colors/patterns. The Rhomboid definitely stands out. I am a firm believer in the acclimation box especially when mixing wrasses but also for general additions.

We jumped on a NYAquatic deal today too.

This will about round out my list until it's time to re-home one or both tangs. I am hoping to get another year out of these two before the 4 foot tank starts bothering them. Thus far they are both happy though.

Nice! Attenutus is on of my faves. I always get subadults, females or juveniles. Longer lifespan. I probably have room for a couple more (have one in QT now) but am in the early stages of planning to go bigger.

Impressive fish list you have. Congratulations on the Rhomboid transition
I am excited to see him develop coloration. I thought I noticed black on the dorsal last weekend but told myself it was just shadow/lighting. Yesterday it caught my eye again and there was no mistaking it.

Mines a female as well. If it is anything like my other female wrasse I added in the past she may transition quick like the others. My Shutmani and Johnsoni felt like they changed over night. Always fun to see!
