Tempting cause I freaking love wrasses, but that's a darn 2/45 hour drive... One way is longer than the actual presentation...

He knows the different wrasses, but he has made a few mistakes and doesn't know the requirements for all wrasses. That would be difficult for anyone, even with 20 years of experience. He is into high end wrasses for the most part.

Who knows everything or hasn't made mistakes? just because he doesn't know everything doesn't mean he can't give an interesting talk. I'm sure he has experiences that he can share. Everyone has something we could learn from them.

i speak all the time to other reefers about them and have been keeping them for a decade, and have kept 20 plus different species, but no means do i consider myself a expert even with all the different wrasse's ive kept and all the years. and kept with alot of different species of fish and corals. i am pretty good about knowing what one's do better with other wrasse's and other fish, but have been fooled also. 1 fish or certain type of fish can change the whole personality of a fish or the other fish. ive gotten several other members into collecting them, but would by no means consider myself or anyone else a expert in keeping them. i think experianced keeper is a better term. i am not trying to take away what he has learned from keeping them but tanaka would be what i would consider a expert more so on them.

Just had the honor/pleasure of Hunter Hammond, and Mike (BfishLpond78) from CTARS spending an hour checking out my tank and talking wrasses!
If I had the time, I'd certainly take the trip to hear Hunter speak today in Ct...well worth the trip...not to mention the big 'wrasse wraffle'!
