      Scientific Name: Cirrhilabrus flavidorsalis
      Max. size: 6.5 cm TL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: reef-associated; marine ; depth range 6 - 40 m
      Distribution: Western Central Pacific: Philippines. Reported from Indonesia and Palau.
      Morphology: Dorsal spines (total): 11; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 9. Males highly variable in color with dorsal fin colors from all yellow to red or blue, and body from red to pink or white, depending on mood and stage (Ref. 48636).
      Biology: Inhabits finely branching corals on protected coral and rubble slopes. Occurs in aggregations
      Aquairum Care:Has a temperature range of 72 - 83°F (22 - 28°C) and has a natural diet of zooplankton. Requires a meaty diet, including fortified brine shrimp, mysis, black worms and other meaty type frozen foods. May hide for several days when introduced, and also a good jumper! Needs two or three feedings per day. They make good reef aquarium inhabitants if supplied with ample crevices and caves. They don't bury themselves in the sand at night, as do many other wrasses. Instead, they may form a mucus cocoon similar to some parrotfishes and/or wedge themselves into a rock crevice. It should be noted the cocoon remnants do not seem to harm water quality or other aquarium inhabitants

      It was not a good shot of mine. I will post some other ones of the species if I can someday.
