    Wrasses

    I bought a wrasse from the last TRANSHIPPMENT and it is very nice. Its pink with a few white spaces on the sides. It also has a bright yellow fin [top fin? dorsal,pectoral?] with a touch of blue. It was called a FAIRY WRASSE ''NEW' but thats it. Not sure of the latin name. Ivan, do you remember the latin name?
    anyone have an idea just by the describtion? sorry no pics and I haven't seen it in my research as of yet.

    FOUND IT

    The pic doesn't do it justice at all. Mine is all hot pink with the white patches and bright yellow fin with a rim of blue. Its the same fish though.
    CIRRHILABRUS FLAVIDORSALIS also known as the YELLOW TAIL.

    Personally, I like the wrasses from the genus: Pseudocheilinus. The most common from this group is the six-line wrasse and I currently have a "Striated" wrasse (Pseudocheilinus evanidus).

    More info here: http://www.wetwebmedia.com/pseudocheilinus.htm
