I currently have a bonded pair (male 5" & female 3") of Melanurus Wrasses in my 125 along with a 6-line (1") and cleaner wrasse (4") and everyone is getting along great. A local reefer (who I got the female melanurus from) is offering me a Male Ornate Leopard (3") and I'm trying to decide if I should take it. The Leopard is eating everything (frozen, pellet, flake) - he has had it for over a year but he recently downsized tank and the Male is harassing the females to the point that they are just staying put in the sand bed non-stop. He has the male caught in an acclimation box.

Thoughts on adding this guy to my wrasse haven.

Just my two cents but that is a tough task if you ask me. Large enough tank yes but a already established melanurus pair and 6 line angry elf could be a tough go. But if you give it a go use your buddies acclimation box and see what happens. Good luck.
