    This is the more common species in the genus. Pseudojuloides cerasinus, Smalltail wrasse : aquarium

    I've got the rarer one. Nobody at LFS knew what it was. P. severnsi:

    Very unusual genus of wrasses. Body shape makes them look like sardines on acid. Heard some people have trouble getting them to feed. Needs peaceful tankmates and definitely a cover. They're quite skittish and very prone to jumping.

    Yeah they're cool. Just a pity that you hardly ever see females imported. They don't look nearly as nice, but it's always nice to have a group.
