    I dived these guys out yesterday...the blue one is some sort of cleaner wrasse, could just be juvenile. The other is also a wrasse but cant find id in my marine book, but if it helps, he swims with the same motion as a leaf wrasse.

    thanks @CheriS ...much appreciated. Wasn't quite sure on the cleaner as I have never seen a juvi. As for the Coris Caudimacula....first time I've seen one while diving so I grabbed it. Really cool little guy.

    Keep an eye on the Coris Caudimacula... I had one and he seemed to like killing my goldies. Would rip into them and kill them, but not eat them.
