    Thanks! I was hoping it was a male. I thought these fish were pretty rare. I paid 80$ for it. Is that a normal price?

    I have a crescent tail (very closely related) and she's great. She was timid in qt for maybe a day or two? Afterwards she was constantly greeting me and begging for food. The transition to the dt was pretty much the same. Timid around the other fish for a couple days but is just as excited to see me as anyone else. She's been in the dt for ~2 months. VERY passive. I'm assuming yours will have more or less the same temperament. I'd advise against any overly aggressive or boisterous fish as tank mates

    If you were considering adding more wrasses there's some GREAT write-ups and compatibility charts on here. There's a few members who really know their stuff. Evolved, eat breakfast, 4fordfamily(I think is the spelling), that I'm sure would be eager to answer any questions
