    Now I'm wondering if I should only get one Wrasse. Of the two that I mentioned which one is a better fit for a rather peaceful reef?

    Of the 2, a solorensis is generally more peaceful.

    It's worth mentioning that neither is guaranteed to be peaceful though. I do agree that in general solorensis is the more mild choice, but sometimes specimens of that species can be pretty feisty as well. If you really want to ensure a peaceful species, your best bet is neither of them. :p

    Vendors are stating that both of those fish are "peaceful". But they're just trying to make a buck or two.
