Here are two old and terrible shots of my wrasses, this thread is going to force me to get my camera out to get some nice shots. I'm looking to add a flasher wrasse, we will have to see. I also had a melanurus but got rid of it to make room for a second chalk bass to pair up.

Halichoeres leucoxanthus




Yellow-banded possum wrasse

Coris Gaimard, a lot less blue dots but still a beautifull fish though.

My fave fish is a melanurus wrasse. It is about 4 inches and very active. It is not aggressive, just very active.

I recently lost my old tank mainstay a long nosed hawk and decided to get a Six Line Wrasse as I'd never owned on before. Well so far he has been a bit of a handful for such a little guy. The only other wrasse I've ever owned was a cleaner which I had for 5 years way back and liked quite a bit. From what I know wrasses can sometimes not ship well and I was all set to take a good amount of time carefully acclimating him.

He looked better than just about any fish I have ever ordered online when I opened the box that came yesterday. He was swimming around in the bag looking very inquisitive and not stressed at all. I open the bag to get ready to start transferring some tank water into the bag after temp acclimating it for a while and BOOM he jumps over the lip of the bag into the tank. Well that turned out to be a shorter acclimation than I had thought I would do. Well first thing he does is dive to the bottom of the tank and start checking out the aquascape. About 5 minutes in he grabs a big coepod, bites him in half, swallows one half and then the other. So at least he's eating and looking happy right away. The most surprising thing to me is my Royal Gramma, who is a mean little fish, seems to treat him like a cleaner wrasse. He just hovers nearby him and the Six-line seems to look him over. Is that normal? I wasn't aware Six-Lines acted like cleaners.
