Well, back to the Rottness Island "series" again.
A male western king wrasses (Coris auricularis) about 30 cm in length
Another male western king wrasse of a similar size.
Look at the red/pink on their cheeks, I guess that's why they are also called the blushing wrasse.
This one is a female. Female and juvenile western king wrasses are known to set up cleaning stations on the reef. They help clean fishes that visit them of parasites.
