I accidentally photographed this little guy that was sharing the anemone with Red Sea anemonefish. Any help with ID? It is from Hurghada, Red Sea.

Common name is "6-line wrasse" It's a pretty common aquarium fish. Don't have my book handy to get you genus and species, sorry.

Thanks - now that I know what it is the identification is so much easier to do! :huh: Latin name is Pseudocheilinus hexataenia, and images indeed match very nicely to both Kuiter's book as well as Lieske&Myers's drawing.
