I have no idea what kind of wrasse this is.. maybe someone else does?
Thank you! i looked up that wrasse and they don't look anything alike. Are there different morphs and such of mystery wrasse? I only ask because they don't resemble any of the same identifications when looking up how to identify juvenile or adult mystery wrasse.
I removed the blue and it looks like a red line wrasse. Adults will lose the black eye spots according to the book I have
The dorsal fin and anal fin is actually blue. The rest of the wrasse has a pink head and the color fades to white. It has white barring throughout the eye and face. That's just a little description I could give from viewing in person. The only concerning thing with it being that species is that it has 4 eye spots and the juve red lines only have 3 from all accounts and pictures I have read and seen. Although, I will look into the red line wrasse more!
I am going to have to rule out the red line wrasse as well because they have different dorsal fin patterns as well as the fact that on this wrasse. The eye bar runs through the eye and the red line it runs under and over the eye.
Yes definitely not Red line. I can't find anything in my book that has a pink head that fades to white.
I have been scouring the internet for this species because I am very interested in buying it. I just want to know more about it before I do. I can't seem to find it anywhere which is fascinating in itself.
can you call where you saw it and ask them?
They were told it was a triselis coris wrasse, but when you look that up.. it's not even a thing.
to me, at 1st glance it looked like a Blue-Margin Fairy wrasse....but the spots are throwing me off
looks similar to halichoeres pallidus
Yes the spots are so odd. I wonder if it's a mongrel
The pale wrasse is close.. It is is lacking the dorsal dots though. Maybe they have them when they're juve? One thing I'm pretty sure is that it is in the family Halichoeres.
Does this look like it in person?
Nope. On the caudal fin there's an orange band that looks like is forming
The head is also a deep pink color that fades into a more white as you run your eyes posterior (mouth to caudal fin) on it's body
I figured it out. It's an H. trispilus
