    Any ideas on the type of wrasse?
    It came in as a baby. I thought it was a Longfin for a while, but it does not seem to be.

    It is orange on top while displaying, but reddish when relaxed.
    Generally white underneath, except for a blue area.
    The tail and a part of the fins are blue. But at the ends, not like pictures of a longfin.

    VERY hard to get a good picture of him displaying. :mad:

    More like a whip fin than long fin. Time will tell.

    Yep, that seems to be it.
    Looks a lot like the liveaquaria picture except for the dorsal fin.

    Side note : This was the other Wrasse.
    I bought both as random small juveniles.
    Now that I know what to look for, this one appears to be a Whip Fin as well.
    Just still a juvenile, or female.
