Okay Ryan, you asked, so you shall receive. I had to scour my collection in order to find a photo that would be able to compete here.

My McCosker's Flasher Wrasse. He isn't too shy a fish and will stand up for himself against my Big Momma clown if she gets pithy with him.

Hi Nebthet, my McCosker can also be quite rambunctious at times, I am quite certain that he is the cause of the demise of my Naoko :cry: He is now banished to QT possibly awaiting a new home :neutral:

Thanks Muck,
The Rhomboid is my favorite wrasse, and the best behaved out of the bunch.

Here are a couple of my Blue Margin, a beautiful fish in its own right. He, however can be quite the bully towards other Cirrhilabrus'. (Please excuse the dirty glass :redface:)

If I had a way to get up to Toronto, I would take your McCosker's off your hands. Unfortunately, I don't know when I would be heading up there next.


I love your blue margins, so nice looking.

Our guy here is two years old + -----jumped out of the tank twice in the past and survived. 6.5 foot drop onto the hardwood floor.....and stuck it. I gave him 10/10 for the jump....hope he never does that again.

Sorry guys.. I dropped the ball on this months contest. I forgot to ask another staff member to look after getting the poll up as I was going to be out of the country without much access to internet. Will get it posted up as soon as I can though. :wink:
