Maybe some type of a pencil wrasse?
I thought that too and they were thinking a type of Halichoeres possibly. Very pretty fish.
Halichoeres pelicieri/zeylonicus/ gurrobyi. They are all similar looking and care and temperament are the same.
Thanks eatbreakfast! The Halichoeres Zeylonicus aka Ceylon wrasse is him!
Another diamond tail in tonight’s drop....
It has a blemish too, so I’m guessing it will be priced accordingly.
Another Bell's as well.
Why does this happen when my QT is overflowing?!
I'll hold them for you.
They’ll hold shipment after you’ve purchased for up to two weeks for ya, regardless of what their policy states...
That was quick!
$255.99 (after discount) shipped for a terminal male attenuatus with the tiniest blemish on its tail, is a great deal!
Not rare wrasses, but Im so stoked getting these in my tank. Been wanting these for a while, but took me few months before I was able to evict my evil 6 line. Bwahah So last week, I finally got em.
IDK, if it were me I wouldn't have bought it, usually I don't mind the blemishes but the tail is one of the coilcoo things about this fish.
6lines are such devils...
Useful buggers, but they’re devils!
Agreed, but given the rarity, I’m sure whomever bought it is still quite stoked to be adding this beauty into their system.
So I’m guessing LA bought up all the Attenatus’ destined for North America?
Their collectors definitely found a honeypot location...
They’ve been trickling them out and making a killing!
Wonder how much the collectors in Kenya got?
Can’t imagine it’s even 10% of what they’ve been selling them for...
I know right?! That's why I'm planning on adding a small 6 line maybe in a week or two.
Are 12 lines have same behaviors?
Yes, I believe they’re also ornery, though not as bad.
Your best bet might be a pink streaked wrasse...
They're quite chill.
Oh I see. Thanks, I'll look into them
Yeah I would still be excited,but the way I see it is if you wait such a long time for such an awesome fish...i wouldn't want to settle for one with a damaged tail. Maybe I'm just being too picky though.
Really?! I tried to get them to a couple of years ago but they wouldn't. Do you have to call them? There's no place on the order form to even wait the second day....it always defaults to the day after you order!
Thanks for the tip!
Picked up a trio rhomboid over the weekend. Here is a pix of a male to share.
There are so many other wrasses that provide the same usefullness without the attitude od a sixline.
12lines aren't nearly as bad, as that's another common name for a juvenile melanurus wrasse.
Separate names with a comma.
