Wrasse?

There is a orangish fish at the local restaraunt in their SW tank that has 2 front fins it flaps like crazy to move its body around and my wife calls it a broken butted fish because the way it swims around it looks like its butt is sagging so the whole fish creates a half moon type shape heh

I am trying to figure out what kind of fish it is.

I had asked but they didn't know... the fish has since died or they got rid of it lemme look at your links.. I remember thinking it resembled a wrasse... but I didn't know what kind... It was a rainbow orange purple type color now as I remember more vividly.

**edit**

yea I looked through liveaquaria before I posted here and couldn't confirm the fish type

My first thought would be a pseudochromis/dottyback.
