That's quite the infamous photo of P. filamentosus which belongs to someone else...
fish /f??/ - Filamented Flasher Wrasse (Paracheilinus...
Fantastic collection Hunter.
i purchased my first wrasse 3 weeks ago and have in a QT now. i cant wait to see how it acts in the DT, it spends most of the day with all its fins out and rides the current of the filter, almost looks like a kite in the water. will post a pic in a week when i get it out of quarantine. maybe you guys could tell me a little more about this fish.
I think wrasses will be a new addiction for me!! You guys are bad influences!!! Haha
I currently have a 40 breeder with very minimalist aquascape. What wrasses can I get?
I was thinking a melanurus wrasse and/or yellow coris wrasse. Would that be okay? I want advice first
Yes indeed but I never said it was "mine" ... I posted it to show a Flasher Wrasse as part of the many Wrasse that are posted.
Very nice everyone!
@Brad Syphus which wrasse is in the 4th pic?
Sent using Razr Maxx, excuse any typo's!
Wow! That Naoko wrasse is beautiful.
Awesome pics of some gorgeous wrasses Brad!
It is an Elegant coris wrasse, male. Endemic to Hawaiian waters. I have the female mate as well. When my halides go off and just the actinics are on, they do a ritual mating dance every night. The boy has spunk. LOL
Here is the female..
Thank you Mike and Terry, It's very hard keeping up with the two of you. :tea:
They look amazing! Do they flip rocks/frags over as the red coris wrasse does in search of food?
What an awesome series of Wrasse that have been posted already, and it is no wonder therefore that Wrasses have become a "lot" more popular for Reef Tanks and even for Nano Reef ones, for instance with the Tailspot and the Wetmorella or Pygmy/Tanaka Wrasses.
I do not have any in my current 20 G High Nano but have been considering removing a Lantern Basslet that is getting too big for his britches and becoming a little more bully than he use to be and replacing him with one of the more sedate small Wrasses.
Wow ... what a nice number of splendid looking ones indeed. Congrats.
And the same to you Brad, even if you are becoming an Anthias convert. :tongue:
Perhaps, but we'd need a photo... :wink:
IMO, a 40 is borderline for most Halichoeres in terms of sufficient space; personally I wouldn't.
It's much more suitable for most Paracheilinus (flasher) species, and also acceptable for a handful of the Cirrhilabrus (fairy) species which stay under 3.5". Lastly, any Wetmorella (possum) wrasse would also be fine.
Fair, but that was not the apparent intent of this thread. And it was my impression you claimed ownership of it in response to Brett.
They are one of the smallest species of the Coris genus, and are supposedly less prone to behaving like the more traditional Coris (as you're thinking). However, I'm also interested to hear Brad's experience here.
Sorry must have not looked at the intent of the thread, I thought it was just posting pics of Wrasse. My mistake.
What's this wrasse called?
this flasher will always have a place in my tank if ever! all 3 of mine are still frozen. can't seem to let them go...
