    Hello All,
    I have been too busy to even think with work and a new baby boy. Finally last week Justin and I went collecting down at Shaka's Rock. Caught this wrasse in the large pool there but have no idea what it is. Could not find it in any books or online. Any ideas?

    I'm sure it is still a juvi as it still has that typical spot on the dorsal that most juvi wrasse have. The green is lime green and when it is not stressed in goes to brown on the front. After a week he eats well and it seems as though his mouth/nose is slightly longer. Thanks for all your help. Looking forwaard to seeing you soonand chatting more as life normalizes. ;)

    I've never seen a juvi this small before. Didn't know what a juvi bird wrasse this size actually looks like. He is only about 3-4 cm. Thanks!
