    Hellllo

    I have a Powder Brown (very small) in Qt (20g) with a clown head wrasse.

    They are almost done their 30 days of copper.

    However the pbt has recently become a terror chasing the wrasse everywhere (I have lots of pipe cover)

    My concern isnt really for the qt but for when I release him into the 125 (6 feet)

    Is this behavior likely to continue? should I sell before putting into community tank?

    It depends on a myriad of factors, but it’s not a good sign. Any other tangs in the 125 now? A lone or tank boss powder brown, powder blue, goldrim, or achilles is bad news..

    Put a mirror on the end of the tank. I have to do this with every addition because my PBT. He fights himself for a while and gets used to seeing the new fish then I take the mirror down and no problems. It’s worth a shot

    Agreed with the mirror. It is an easy fix if it does work. I tried it with an aggressive Yellow and it never worked the way I hoped it would, but it sure doesn't hurt to try.
