'I'm a big name underwater'

Considered the most spectacularly colored of all coral reef fish, flasher wrasse derive their common name from the unique courtship behavior of the males, which rise up in the water column and suddenly "flash" electric neon colors while simultaneously erecting their fins to draw the attention of potential mates. This species was discovered in April 2006.
