On May 2, Advanced Aquarist reported about the first ever Mauritius Flasher Wrasse to land in the United States.  This recent photo shows the male Paracheilinus piscilineatus with much stronger coloration after recovering from the long trek from the Indian Ocean to the United States.  The wrasse is now adjusting to life in Jim’s huge reef aquarium in Nebraska (alongside Cirrhilabrus earlei wrasses).
