That's a beautiful fish. Has the markings of a clown. What is the name of it ?

It's a Red Coris Wrasse (Coris gaimard).

@ Tommy that was the reason I had to have him. I went to the lfs for a Coral Beauty and ended up buying the Wrasse to. He's my new favorite fish.

Lucky for you, this is what they blossom into! It's amazing, and he is by far one of the most beautifully marked and colored fish!!! I love mine!

@ Elude your fish look really cool. I noticed you also have a Toby swimming in the background on one of your pictures. How big is your Wrasse? How long did it take to get that big?

@ Elude. I'm a newbie to the salt water world. I like your lighting in your tank. What kind if lights do you have?

The lightis a Truelumens from current. I love it. Look them up on currentusa website. Yes, it's a Valentini Puffer (Toby). I actually bought the Wrasse about a month ago. The LFS had him that size already. And welcome to the Salt Water world and Aquarium Advice. I am on here often, so I will see you around.
