When diving yesterday, I saw a large school of what I assumed were juvenile creole wrasse. When I got home and looked at the photo, I was not so sure. My wife and I pored over Reef Fish, and we are less sure now. We have two questions. One, are they all the same fish? And, two, are thesee juvenile creole wrasse, black basslets or blue chromis, and how can you tell them apart?
