I swear this is my last wrasse photo haha.
However, I finally got a photo of all three pinkies together. I will admit it’s bad but they get their other name for a reason don’t they?

Just because they’re hard to spot here’s where each are;
The top of that small gap is one, then the obvious one is right in the centre with the majority of the body. And the final one is much harder to see, next to a point in the very top rock.

I was looking and looking and looking and I’m like where’s the third one. Until I read the rest of the post under the pic lol

How big is he now? Is it possible to get a side shot?
He’s about 5 inches from nose to tail, possibly larger. I’ll definitely be trying to get a side on photo of the Chloropterus :)

You just love changing your profile don‘t you? :winking-face-with-tongue: I like this one
I do haha, I mean at one point it was my old Flashing Tile, then I believe I changed it to my Wrasses and now just rotate between all ten of them.

Had to move my new orange back out of observation early due to rescuing a purple tang from petco.

being harassed by my juvenile tang but has a great cave. Love the color.

Beautiful wrasses. But be prepared to rehome the mystery wrasse as it will likely beat on the pintail and rhomboid. How large is this tank?

Thanks for the reaction. For now things go good, i have them for about 2 weeks now. Sometimes the mystery wrasse is hunting the leopard for a few second but its happening sometimes.
Its a 150gallon

Have fun with that red corris......

Mine started to turn into quite the bully as it transitioned. Fish it grew up with for a couple years, all of a sudden were the target of the bullying. I ended up rehoming it to a friend. It is the only wrasse in his tank, and has settled now that it's fully transitioned. Still a bully in his tank, but his fish tolerate it better then my wrasses did.

Certainly a beautiful fish as an adult male, and as a juvenile female, just wish they weren't such jerks as adults.

Yeah, I'm planning to move the radiant and the rest of the fish should be able to handle themselves. Triggers, maroon clown, foxface, eels. That's the plan at least.

Wish I could get good pics of my gang.

I sit here on my couch about 10 feet from my tank, and of course they are all out and playing. Even the moyers comes out to play with the others now, and the melagris leaves it alone!

Soon as I get up off the couch, BAM they all disappear into the rocks or sand! Can never seem to get a good pic. Might have to get a telescopic lens and a decent camera so I can shoot pics from the couch. lol
