If it's the only wrasse in the tank it will be fine.
I have a 200 gallon (160 display) tank with an African Exquisite Fairy Wrasse Terminal Phase Male.
I'm interested in buying a Red Velvet Fairy Wrasse Terminal Phase Male (Cirrhilabrus rubrisquamis). Can someone please tell me if they will get along? I checked the following page, but can't find Cirrhilabrus Exquistus.
Sorry, I found Cirrhilabrus Exquistus. Green Box.
Cirrhilabrus rubrisquamis is in the dark orange box not close to the green box. Safe to get?
They'll be fine together.

Not sure now.
I have kept them frequently with other fairy wrasses. Especially with the exquisite in there first, and the tank being 160g, it will be fine.
Just wondering; will a true cleaner Wrasse clean another Wrasse? And can they both go together in the same 10 gallon QT?
My cleaner wrasse leave no fish alone all must be cleaned and examined 20+x a day. So yes they will clean other wrasses but not sure about the 10gal QT
I probably wouldn't qt them together because the cleaner can pester other fish too much, especially in such a confined space and only having 1 other fish with it. I would do the cleaner wrasse by itself.
It depends. A cleaner wrasse will clean other wrasses for sure, however, there are a number of other wrasse species that act as facultative cleaners at various stages of their lives, and there can be significant aggression between them and cleaner wrasses.
Don't ask how, but I made a mistake and put two male Carpenter wrasses in the same tank. 30X30 cube. One is 25% larger than the other, but they are both clearly male. Umm.. what now?
Catch one out.
Heh. I tried.
Try feeding exclusively with a net for a couple of weeks or use a fish trap with a mirror in the back.
Six Line Wrasse (Pseudocheilinus hexataenia) - Any concerns or differences based on collection location as in Fiji or Maldives?
No real differences in specimens from different locations.
Thanks for the quick response! I didn’t expect any decision changing differences but thought I'd check.
I also have a rubrisquammis in with a rhomboid (both are 4+" long terminal males) also a young brunneus and jordani. The rhomboid is the dominant, and the rubrisquammis pays no attention to the smaller jordani and brunneus. Had a bathyphilus, but he got super excited and managed to find an opening and jumped behind the tank during a feeding. he and the rubrisquammis also got along just fine.
they are all in a 5' long 15oG.
hope this helps.
