    I've been offered a really nice 5" Marshal Island Wrasse by my local fish store.

    Its a real cracker .....very colourful and peaceful with the other smaller tank mates at the store.

    I've come home to try and find information about it and drawing a blank...

    Any help or info appreciated guys......

    That's what I was looking for ...... amongst other things. Can't even find a photo.

    I asked for the shipping lists but this fish has been in the store a few weeks and I have looked at it a few times, just wish I had asked sooner,

    The big question, do I take the chance......

    Its Yellow/green base with typical wrasse markings of various colours from yellow through to red

    If I get it I will arrange for it to be returnable I'm thinking......... My LFS is great like that
