Hi,

I ordered 2 Bodianus masudai last Saturday morning and received both on Tuesday. After a day both acclimated and eating. The question I've is I don't see any yellow as in the picture posted on your web. After looking at various online pictures and the pictures on page 76 of Wrasses & Parrotfishes by Scott Michael it appears to be Bodianus sepiacaudus instead of Bodianus masudai.

I'm hoping you can help clarify/identify as to what I received.

TIA!

Hey Kevin. Sorry it took so long to respond. The move has been really crazy but we are almost finished. Yay!

Lets touch base either today or Monday. You call me or I will call you.

Take care my friend.

That's fine. Nothing urgent so let's touch base next week. I'll call you say Tuesday to give you time to get things done on busy Monday.
