Longfin Fairy Wrasse and Yellowfin Flasher Wrasse

I promised to update with better photos of my longfin fairy wrasse in previous blog entry. I also wanted to show off my male yellowfin flasher wrasse Paracheilinus flavianalis named Mercury. I've had him for a few weeks now, and he is doing great. They eat frozen mysis and cyclops, but also eat live amphipods they catch in the aquarium. The two wrasses get along famously and follow one another around, pecking at the live rock. Mercury regularly flashes and flares for her, and I think she looks impressed. They must not care that they belong to different genera!Paracheilinus flavianalis
