    Macropharyngodon XXXXX

    Been chasing these critters for some time now in the local surge gulleys.
    finally got one in the right place, right time, right wave surge.

    beautifull fish, I like the green colour. Not too many green fish around.
    Are the 2 different wrasse happy with each other?

    They seem to get along okay.
    Bipartitus was a little miffed at first, gave it a peck or two, now it just ignores it.

    Other wrasse including 6 line, Floral and Iridis dont even acknowledge its existance.
