Question Blueside Fairy Wrasse?

I just picked up this little gem at my LFS. I had to get it ordered in, and it looks a lot prettier than the pictures I'd seen of Cirrhilabrus cyanopleura when I was researching Cirrhilabrus species for my 55g reef tank. It's pretty small right now, maybe around 3" or so?

Nice fish. Good luck with it. I've gotten in a few of these years ago and if I remember correctly, they did very well. Just make sure you give them multiple feedings per day. They don't eat a lot at each meal so they don't have a lot of reserves in the belly. Smaller meals throughout the day is the key.
