Adding a wrasse with aggressive tang. Hello! I just discovered your site and it has been a huge help to me! I apologize if you’ve already addressed this issue, I read through the FAQ on wrasse compatibility and didn’t see my exact situation. I have a 120-gallon marine setup with the following fish: 3 Green Chromis (1″ each) 1 Maroon Clown (1″) 1 Long-nosed Hawkfish (3″) 1 Flame Angel (2″) 1 Pearlscale butterflyfish (3″) 1 Purple Firefish (3″) 1 4-spot yellow Coris (2″) 1 Diamond Goby (2″) 1 Sailfin Tang (4″ with fins extended, 1″ body only) Up until two months ago I also had a beautiful exquisite fairy wrasse that I was particularly fond of. The wrasse passed away, we think it was because he was pestered unmercifully by the 8-line wrasse that my LFS assured me would be fine as long as we bought them together. I’d like to get another fairy wrasse but I’m now concerned that the tang won’t allow it. He was pretty obnoxious when I brought the butterflyfish in although the tang had only been in the tank a few days himself. He’s since settled down and stopped harassing the butterflyfish (possibly because the butterfly outsizes him by a bit) but I’m concerned that he would bully a more docile fairy wrasse unceasingly. Is there a way to add a fairy wrasse safely? Would you recommend quarantining the tang for a few weeks? Any help that you can provide would be greatly appreciated! Many thanks Gretchen

The wrasse is a unique facts as the he could be a beneficial far additional contour

Wrasse compatibility Hi , I have a 79 gallon reef tank with a Halichoeres ornatissimus in and on Saturday I added a Anampses meleagrides and a Coris gaimard << I can't think of a more beautiful sight to see. >> the ornate wrasse has not bothered the Anampses but has not left the Coris alone consequently I have not seen the Coris for longer than 5 min.s , will the situation get better or have I got a major problem on my hands. << There is good news and bad news. the good news is that many times after a few days the fish realize they are stuck with their tank mates and they work it out. The bad news is that many times they just pick on a fish until it dies. >> My LFS said that the Coris would be ok in tank. << It really is hit and miss. I think your tank is right on that borderline size where they may or may not have enough room to make a home. I would say that having lots of live rock would really help the situation. But for now all you can do is cross your fingers. >> thanks yours Sharon brown << Blundell >>

Shrimp vs. wrasse 6/ Hello-Question? My sixline wrasse ate most of my cleaner shrimps legs. This all started right gaydar-ondersteuning after he molted. I have him in a net box to keep him out of harms way, but I was wondering-will the shrimps legs grow back? I been trying to feed him by my hand, which is not working. So I dunno if I should just keep him till he dies or take him back to the fish store. Also my firefish, although he is active and eats a lot, looks very malnourished. I feed him formula one frozen food. Is there anything else I can do? I am guessing that my wrasse is a very aggressive fish and my tank may be just too small.
