    Hi guys

    Was driving around to few lfs yesterday and came across an unusual flasher wrasse that came in from kenya.was not showing much colour as there was another dominant carpenter wrasse in the tank, but thought it would be something special.

    Turns out I got me a diamond tail flasher wrasse

    These guys normally sell for $200 dollars upwards. .but are sometimes shipped from kenya as unidentified flasher wrasse...superstoked

    Not much colour yet but the tail is evident
