    Anyone with an opinion on multiple lubbocks wrasses in a 450. I've decided I really like them and think it would be cool to have a bunch. Unsure if the one I have is M or F though.

    Probably best to keep one of any species of fairy Wrasse to prevent aggression. I would add different species of fairy Wrasse if you want multiple. @eatbreakfast @evolved anything else you would add?

    Agree, but do you think we run the risk of more than one turning male eventually? Or is that not a risk because of their temperament?

    Oh they will all turn male, but this species can coexist in a 450g.

    So I bought three. They looked fine for a week or two but now all are swimming in that head up, rolling motion. I'm assuming swim bladder problem. Added some magnesium sulfate to the QT, but I've never had much luck with fish that show these kinds of symptoms. Any other suggestions?
