Any ideas on this guy? Labeled as pink-stripe coris, from Austrailia.

definitely no green on him....all yellow. the pink stripes break into blotches as the pattern approaches the anal fin. I don't know if this is a juvenile or an adult, unfortunately this was the best pic I could get at the time.

Coris dorsomacula, the official common name is Pale-barred Coris, but it is also known as Pink-lined Rainbow Wrasse.

Sweet! Thanks!

Any idea if the one I have pictured is male or female?
