    Pretty much it.. I have ignitus and they are peaceful and mix with pretty much anything but my male Lyretail will go after them sometimes even though he shoals with them all the time. My female lyretail sits by herself most of the time.. My male lyretail is little and I worry a little bit when he gets bigger. My male ignitus is way bigger than him for now and keeps him in place for now.

    I love my male lyretail. He is awesome. I'm thinking about adding a couple females as well.

    Reviving an old thread.

    @eatbreakfast Do you have a preference between randalls or dispar? Are the personalities and hardiness fairly similar? Would they be good tank mates for a bunch of fairy/flasher wrasses?

    Originally I wanted to go with 6-7 dispars in my future build but then I saw a pic of the randalls!! They're phenomenal looking.

    I like both fairly equally. Their care and temperaments are comparable. They go well with fairy and flasher wrasses.

    I have 8 Bartlett's Anthias in a tank which also contains 3 wrasses. There is a ridiculous amount of splashing at meal times, I have to near simultaneously put food in at at least two locations to keep them from jostling so much.
