Hahaha! I am wrong all the way around this one.When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

Yay! So it is a wrasse!
At first I thought it looked just like a cichlid, but then I remembered that you were working at a marine facility. Then I thought grouper just like Mommy1 but all groupers have upturned mouths versus the down turned one this guy has.
Considering the other species you have posted, could this wrasse be a temperate water species native to the Americas?

Well, the marine centre im working in only stocks Scottish sea life. So any pictures or videos I post are all native to the not so temperate scottish waters ;)My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

Ding ding ding!!! We have a winner!!!!
Labrus bergylta commonly known as the Ballan Wrasse. It is the largest wrasse in Scottish waters. This large male has been in the aquarium for around 16-17 years. So he is a very big healthy male.My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .
