Well I drove up to the Springs today with the intention of buying another Solar Wrasse (Cirrhilabrus solorensis). I got to Mr. Aqua, and he had about three, but something else caught my eye. As luck would have it he had a Red Velvet Fairy Wrasse (Cirrhilabrus rubrisquamis) that I couldn't take my eye off. So I spent 3 time more on this fish than planned, but he is a beauty. Except for a little fin damage, he is very healthy. He ate brine shrimp as soon as I released him and wasn't even frightened by my larger fish. I hope this is the last wrasse for me.:D

I think this pic is what makes this fish so special. He has been flashing all evening.

I also bought one from them a few weeks ago, it is also doing great, although mine has never displayed the flashing like yours, I wonder why?

I bought a big 6-line wrasse from Calvin. Has anyone successfully kept a fairy wrasse with a 6-line in a 125G or larger?

Only when the fairy is introduced first...the sixline will kill a fairy.

That's what I figured. Well, the 6-line will probably be more useful in the long run anyway.
