    I like wrasses. If you are looking for yellow, a yellow coris - halichoeres chrysus - might work with the other fish on your list. I have one in a mixed reef with other wrasses, anthias, couple tangs, and it is a great fish.

    I have a small group of chromis and I’ve never run into problems so imo they are fine.

    Coris eat crustaceans

    Personally I would've gone with the Yellow Mimic Tang, but the yellow should be okay in a 135.

    Yellow coris isn't a true Coris species, and while they potentially can eat invert I have found them very unlikely to do so.

    I agree, and specifically said, it can be done. I would caution against the line of thinking that just because you have done it means that it is never a problem. There are forum posts full of people who have tried schools of them and end up with one or a pair.

    +1 on this. Mine hasn't bothered anything. It is possible that it could turn on me, just like any other "with caution" fish, but it's been a year and this particular fish has been a model citizen.

    Thanks for the feedback. Current inhabitants are 4 clownfish, small yellow tang, small Mag Foxface, a 1 Eyed 6line wrasse and a blue damsel. Waiting to see what else I may add. So happy to have my corals in.
