Good luck with the tank. I am totally thrilled with both the Wrasse and the Hamlet. Perfect ending to the stock of the 75. It is complete now!

That's a beautiful wrasse! Not a mccoskers wrasse though. I have a mccoskers wrasse And its not even similar. That's a pic of one in my avatar Ans here is a pic of mine a while back. I don't think its a Christmas wrasse either but that is alot closer than a mccosker.

You are right. It isnt even close to a McCoskers. I have been cruising the net and I think it is a Melanurus Fairy Wrasse. What do you all think?

Yea probably. I saw a baby Christmas wrasse and it was alot more red than that one but fairly close. Awesome looking fish though and you got a good deal. Wrasses are so awesome.
