Wow. What an amazing looking fish. What size tank is he/she going into and who will he have for tankmates?

Thanks guys! That's the lfs shot. I'll be putting him in my FO 72g. Hopefully, he'll be good in there but if I have to I can always move him.

72g is going to be on the small side for the wrasse. They get to 12" and get very aggressive as they become adults. They also need 4-5" of fine sand to bury themselves in. Great looking fish!

Cool!
 
Great looking fish! Had not seen one of those before! One of these days I'll get the nerve up to do a saltwater tank! Good luck with him! <><
