Sorry my bad, your tank is fine. I misread dimensions. I've had mine for several years with 5 other wrasses. Coral beauty, fang blenny, mandarin, etc... with no issues at all but others have found them to be aggressive and territorial. I think the key is to have substantial rock work with caves and numerous areas for them to explore and hunt. Then they ignore other fish in the tank.I've got about 45 gallons. Would the issue mainly be fighting. And if so what fish would it fight with.
The key is in their nickname (666line wrasse).Hello everyone
I've currently got a 20 by 20 by 29 tank. I've got two clowns and some soft corals and I was hoping to add a 6 Line Wrasse. I have heard there abit aggressive and was wondering what kind of tank mates I could keep with it in this sort of tank. How do you think clown gobies would do?
God dang it.That's such a shame. I can't find many other wrasses over here in Australia. Nothing over here. I'm pulling my hair out trying to stock this tank. Thanks for the response though. Pink streak wrasses are really hard to come by here.The key is in their nickname (666line wrasse).
That rockwork isn’t going to be enough to suit their needs, you want Atleast a 3’ tank to have just enough rockwork for them to be happy.
A Clown goby is dead to a sixline unfortunately. And infact most peaceful fish will be dead to a six.
I had a sixline in a 3’x2’x2’ tank with a ton of rockwork (it left almost no room at the back for swimming), and he still killed a CBB with my old scopas tang. I really recommend skipping a sixline and going for a Pink Streak or maybe a smaller Halichoeres with the thought you’ll have to rehome it in the future.
That's how reefing is though. Many ways to reef. You are dealing with living creatures which, like people, have different personalities and habits. A lot of the time only trial and error will tell you what is good for your situation.
I might try and get some from a fellow reefer. That way he can tell me how they have been. Time will tellThat's how reefing is though. Many ways to reef.

There’s so many different answers because everyone reeds in their own ways
Honestly, imagine what we’re saying but with your fellow reefers. It’ll be the same outcome of trial and error and many many different answers.I might try and get some from a fellow reefer. That way he can tell me how they have been. Time will tell
This will have a lot to do with your situation of peaceful sixlines. They are mostly aggressive in small tanks and when added first and not last.If it helps though, I did add them last in the tanks. Not on purpose, but just happened to be the circumstance. Maybe that has something to do with my situation.
