Wrasses handle prazi fine. It is an advisable part of qt.
Thank you. That eases my mind.
I'm rather untimely in a response here, but I agree with eatbreakfast and personally I always do 2 rounds of it in QT.
I've always loved the Eight-lined Flasher. Hunter, in your description you say they are "Much more aggressive than most Paracheilinus, and even some Cirrhilabrus, but is still compatible with both". Does that mean that he would be top dog but still get along or should I avoid this flasher? Too risky to take a chance on?
In 4'+ systems, eightline flashers will work their way to the top of the hierarchy, and are best added after more passive wrasse species.
Thanks TJ. Mine is a 4ft tank. I think I'll have to pass.
Completely depends on the tank size. If large enough, yes - things will be just fine.
And I agree with that rule of thumb. I tend to think of it as a >120 gallon species for safe mixing.
Mr. MACNA Talk knows his stuff!
Shhhh! Don't build their expectations too high!!!
Ha ha! I will attend my first MACNA talk this year when Hunter speaks. This is one I'm interested in!
You've done yourself a disservice not attending any presentations the past 2 years...
I've seen several during that time which were certainly more valuable than mine will be.
Great write-up. Unfortunately, my little brain will require frequent visits to this article when purchasing my first/next wrasse.
Oh Crap! I wish I had read this first, lol. I have a tank with a small six line, a tang, 2 clowns and a cleaner wrasse that eats like a pig and seems to be doing great.... And I wanted more wrasses.... But now that I have read what everyone is saying about the six line.... gggrrrr, he's very small. I wanted a trio of leopards and a melanarus. If I change the rockscape completely (wihout damaging the coral) will that work to have the six line think he's in a different space?
Unlikely. It may work if he doesn't think he is a sixline anymore, but otherwise if you want leopards rehome the sixline.
Lol was just about to tag you.
Agree with eatbreakfast; unfortunately that won't work. It will need to be outright removed before you add any new wrasses.
So am I just chopped liver on my own article? lol
Oh, not at all! Sorry about that bud I have the up most respect for both you. I love reading your articles. This was simply a case where i was quickly responding during my breakfast break at work. Naturally "eatbreakfast" comes to mind. And of course he's right on top of it before I was able to respond hahaha!
I'm very thankful for you guys!
I remember having a self giggle when I tagged TJ as I was eating yogurt and a doughnut.
I'm mad at Hunter anyway. He got me hooked on wrasse and now I can't stop! #addictedwrasseaholic
