new solar wrasse

here is a pic of our new solar wrasee ( Cirrhilabrus solarensis )
he seems to be doing well. ate about 10 pieces of frozen mysis toady. very cool fish. active swimmer and great colors. this one is actually much more blue on his sides. the camera is picking it up more green.

thanks all. we actually have always wanted a lunar, sunset or christmas wrasse. but we like our shrimp and other inverts as much as those wrasse would probably like to eat them, so this was a nice reef safe option

I had one of those fish for about a year before it went carpet surfing, very cool fish it was one of my favorites... just make sure your tank is covered.

I was going to say that I believe that these are jumpers but be careful how you do cover. If you use glass tops you will have PH problems due to poor gas exchange. Maybe egg crate or just a canopy.

Nice fish. Is this one of the wrasse that will lose color over time if mates are not present?
