Gorgeous fish. I had a pair once---How come I know so much about these wrasses and I only have one ordinary C. lubbocki ? Answer- because every other one has jumped on me (please don't ask how many) and I refuse to buy another until I dedicate a tank to their needs i. e. with tight lids. ..... Steven, I know you know this already both about the needs and my personal experiences, but I just thought I'd dramatize for those considering the rather substantial financial committment to these spectacular fish.

I like the 8 line fairy flasher, great finnage --yet I never hear anything about it. If I can find one for a good price I'll buy it and try to promote it more

Me too. Nutrition is key. I remember when Naso Tangs were considered a fish which does well at first and rapidly declined after a few months for "no good reason". Well, fortunately, guys with the proper resources were able to figure out that it was a lack of brown algae in their diets (as well as many who kept them in too small enclosures) that they were able to narrow down the cause of decline. Learning little things that you get out of a site like this hopefully will help more of us get long term results.
I never remember any time when a Naso tang were hard to keep, and I've been keeping fish for over 20 years. The only way a Naso tang, or any tang for that matter, would start to decline and waste away is if it's not being feed correctly, which is very common in reef tanks as most people don't feed enough and when they do it's usually not the correct diet.

Between the various foods that where out there and all the different greens you could have offer, the Naso was actually a very easy fish to keep. You'll actually find a lot of people who have had them for quite some thing and growth them to pretty good size, streamers and all.

I thought that was almost exactly what I said in my previous post. I guess not. Sorry I wasn't clear.
MIKE (slamajama), I posted this thread because of you and all of your wrasses. Where are your pics?

Yeah, I guess she saw yours while she and Fran went to the beach. I'd like one, but they seem a little small and docile. I would have to be careful since I've got 2 six-lines.
