    New Wrasse, can someone ID?

    I was at my lfs getting some DI resin and I spotted this little beauty begging me to take him home. The wife loved him so away we went. The lfs was calling it a Ruby fairy wrasse but it looks nothing like the pics on Google. Anyone know the real name of this little guy?

    Looks like Lubbock's Fairy Wrasse. Very nice fish!

    I've got this one before, it was very nice until I've found it dry out on the floor, really good jumper.

    Thanks to everyone, I guess I've got to put the jump guard back on the tank. I just hope the little guy can't jump the extra 6 inches it adds.

    Wrasses can jump at least 7.5" inches, I know from experience. And they are also able to find a small hole and aim right for it. My exquisite wrasse taught me these lessons.

    I've seen a clown find the only hole over a cover that it could barely fit threw and jump right threw it. I couldn't believe it.
