all three of those are compatible with eachother and the current Cirrhilabrus.
This is assuming with “Yellow Chest Wrasse” you mean Anampses twistii.
Yep that’s it and that’s good to know that they are all compatible. I just may get them all for my 120

Weekly update on the Pink Streak Trio;
I have Atleast 2 of the 3 left. I could be wrong and have all 3 however the issue is I’ve been rather busy and therefor not looked at the tank as much unless it’s the weekend. Will try to watch the tank for a while tomorrow and make sure I am correct in saying I only have two left.
I probably have all three but the issue is they’re all identical so I’ll see one out but not know if I’ve seen that specific specimen out already. Easiest way to see is if all of them appear at the same time.

Looks like those are possibly markings on a juvenile McCoskeris. From HumbleFish thread responses:


"The juvenile McCosker’s Flasher Wrasse, pictured below have an orange background color with three purple lines radiating back from the nose stopping just ahead of the gills. The eye is ringed in red and there is a prominent white mark just above the eye. Two purples stripes start behind the gills and go back towards the caudal area and there is a purple stripe along the dorsal section of the body alongside the dorsal fin."

The linked resource is very informative.

I just saw your original post, but looks like you already got the correct answer :) Yep, it's a juvenile trait.

I’ve had a lot of wrasses in my reefing career. My favorite by far has been my ornate leopard wrasse. He survived a tank move stuck in the sand of an emptied tank.
Wow! That's really impressive!

I come back with the news of I still have the trio. It was funny because they managed to trick me when I looked at the tank at first.
All I saw were all three going down into the rocks from the same area of the tank so it just looked like the same specimen was zooming up and down constantly. I only noticed when I saw all three chilling ontop of the rocks

The pink streak is beautiful, when did you add her?

I managed to pick up two tinted pencil cases so hopefully if the flasher displays, I can get better photos (If the new “filters” work that is).
Well be waiting to see your results

Went a little crazy at the LFS but how could I resist these 3 healthy and eating beauties?
Question though, can I add a Coris gaimard to the tank with the radiant wrasse in the future?

You could but be warned:
Coris gaimard will become highly aggressive as they age. It will also get rather large.
