Lubbock's start out as female like Clowns. Male and female can look some what alike. But the bigger of the group usually is the male. And female can morph into a male. Lubbock's from different regions can have a little different markings or color. House is selling a pair of Lubbock's (Left is the Female). If I'm not saving some room for other wrasses, i would get them... Since Lubbock's are fairly social, you can get a group of males and females together w/o problem.

I got two Lubbock's and they are very shy. How does it take for them to come out of the rocks?

Here are some new Wrasse pics. The C. jordani pair and the C. tonozukai were recieved yesterday from NY Aquatic and are healthy and spectacular. All are eating mysis and pellets. The photos are mediocre at best and truthfully, the best of them were taken by my 6 year old.
