I had a lunar/ lyretail wrasse for many years, and he was the best and hardiest fish i have ever had. He was so tough, he jumped out of the tank and i found him dry and covered with fluff on the floor, I put him back in the tank and he came to after about 5 minutes, and had fully recovered after about three weeks. The only downside was that he was a very boisterous fish, not exactly aggressive but he would just swim around the tank and kind of intimidate everyone else, though i never saw him actually chase or attack any of my other fish. Ornamental shrip were another thing all together, though. All in all, they are a great fish with a real personality, especially if you have a larger tank.

I'd love a wrasse, but I have ornamental shrimp. Is there a wrasse that will not eat the shrimp?

BTW, I think that puff of whater in the clip is him either taking a leak or sneezing (if they do that)....any thoughts?

I hope that you're aware the Checkerboard/Marble wrasse aren't that hardy and most don't make it. They're also big time sand driver, who usually disappear for days at a time.

Marrone,

I have already experience the sand diving, cool sh!t to see them go down like that. He also disappeared for like a day and a half.

As far as hardy, this guy was in House's system for some time. He is eating and swimming around fine. So I will keep my fingers crossed.

Thanks!
