    Howsit Guys,

    Went diving a few weeks back and caught this guy. He was originally purple and silver with a green tail.
    The purple is getting darker and his green is changing to a yellow.

    At first I thought he was a wrasse but I'm not sure.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks Ridwan. Its currently in one of my Quarantine tanks along with a Juvenile Queen Coris and a Semi which I caught on the same reef. They seem to be getting along well.

    Does the wrasse get aggressive when it gets older?

    all I know is that its an extremely hardy fish. Very active. I had one for years. Didn't have any issues with aggression.
