What makes the lyretail anthias easier?
They are hardier, a bit more aggressive( will feed well around other aggressive eaters) and are from shallower water. The deep water anthias are more timid in well lit tanks.

Thinking about adding some Banggai cardinals... 3 at least?
Don’t add more than 2. Even then, you would need to be absolutely certain you have a male and a female and not two of the same gender.
If you had more than 2 then chances are you’d have a pair that would become murderous.

Interesting... Is it me or almost all fish stores say it's safe to have more than 3

Almost all fish stores say it’s safe to have groups of them for sure. Unfortunately many (if not all) of those groups end up becoming a pair of murderous bangaiis.

I will just skip the cardinals and get the two wrasse's.

I am planning to buy them already quarentined. DrReef has some nice reef safe wrasse's and it seems he is highly recommended.

What wrasse's do you guys recommend? I like the Mystery wrasse but never has seen it in real life.

Thanks

Haha I always pick the ones that don't play along with others. What wrasse's do you recommend if I want to add 2 to the tank?
Looking through dr reefs reef safe wrasses quick, they should mostly be okay.

I would avoid the mystery and sixline, any of the leopards (as a new wrasse keeper), and the cleaner wrasse.

The others should mostly be okay.

No problem, really. I just like talking fish! See if you find something you like. There are better wrasse experts here than me, so let us know what you are thinking.

+1 to this, also, as a new wrasse keeper you’ll want to avoid any tamarins (Anampses) and Thalassoma species. The tamarins are harder to keep in most cases and the thalassoma species are nasty as they age.

Naoko fairy wrasses are very underrated. Gorgeous with their fins out and by far the most personable wrasse imo
