New Additions Two Tone Wrasse and Torpedo Wrasse

Hi, in my quest to own every wrasse out there I tried 2 uncommon wrasse's a few weeks ago. One was the Two Tone Wrasse (Halichoeres prosopeion) and a member of the Torpedo Wrasse family (Pseudocoris P. yamashiroi) Both are in my soft coral tank and are eating mysis and pellets. I have attached a short youtube video link and some pictures that do not do the Torpedo wrasse any justice, he is bright green on the top and white on the bottom

I have a couple of Two-Tone Wrasse in my tanks and they're really great looking but can be somewhat aggressive to other fish, not only other wrasses.

That's good to know Mike, this is a semi-aggressive tank so we'll see what develops

I bought a two tone wrasse from Manhattan Aquariums a month ago and it is doing well in my tank. I love it.
