    Default "Attack" Wrasse

    Many of you know I have an open top 300g lagoon in my basement. I have a variety of fish...one of which I refer to as my Attack Wrasse. This silly thing will come out of the tank anytime I wear a red shirt. Without thinking, I walked by the tank to get fish food from the freezer when all of a sudden I feel something hit me in the back and water droplets on my feet. Yeah.. I had a red shirt on. LOL

    Here's a picture of this silly thing. I think it's a yellow-tail coris wrasse, except he doesn't have a yellow tail.

    Has anyone else had this happen? I know that this is a rare set up.... but just curious if anyone else has had an issue with a fish attacking you based on your shirt. This is probably the 4th or 5th time it has happened...and every time I have on a red shirt. Maybe the fish is trying to tell me something... I always thought I looked good in red...maybe not.

    LOL - He's clearly "hitting" on you
