Hahaha! I am wrong all the way around this one.When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
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.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

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 . . . . .
