Yea I know how it is. Im trying to figure out what my 4th and final fish is going to be but I keep changing my mind. Still I like the tusk better than the banana.

This wrasse just sounds so cool though..I do like the tusk but this wrasse is said to be one active and crazy swimmer ..Darting in and out of rock work and caves ...
Sean,does yours seem to fit this description

Gee ,way to rub it in

Do you have a female ?The females stay more yellow where as the males turn blueish ..If i had to ,i'd settle on the male
I want one thats already adult colors too,so probably around 5-6 inches ..
Yes, mine is a female and is constantly in motion. It occasionally has this move where it puts nose to tail (kind of forming a donut) and drops almost all of the way to bottom of the tank and then takes off again. I would say it is every bit as active as my Naso.

FTM, my Naso took about a week to eat (told that is common) but now eats well and is always out and moving. He was about 4" when I got him, he is now about 6". He is currently housed with (and don't yell at me, I know I'm overstocked and working on it):

Powder Blue
Dog Face Puffer
Blue Spotted Toby
Valentini Puffer
Coral Beauty
Tomato Clown
Greenbird Wrasse
Banana Wrasse
Rainbow Wrasse
Pinktail Trigger
Green Wolf Eel

He/she isn't bothered by anyone. Down the road (as everything is pretty small now) I'm thinking about pulling the Dogface and Pinktail. Unfortunately, none of my current stock can got in my 90g that is delivering next Thursday (doing a reef, very excited).

Oh cool,thanks guys ,,kio sorry,i didn't know you had one too..Need to try and keep up with everybody's tanks a little better
So the powder blue didn't cause any problems sean?

Just talked to the guy(they left a message),,says this one is 8-9 inches
It wasn't one they ordered ,its a trade..The message just said they got a naso bigger than they thought..I guess the guy told them he had one and they didn't realize it was that big..They know me and knew i had the tank to house it ,so they called..Time to set up the QT tote
Gonna try and get out early tomorrow
I do like the naso ,but love the blondes ..Thats OK though ..At this size and price,i can't beat it ..I know the purple is going to be spazz out ..not looking forward to that

FTM, my Powder Blue is belligerent and bossy, but the Naso he leaves alone. Actually, everyone leaves him alone and doesn't bother anyone. And you a right, that is a steal. Would love to see pics when it's in.
