So pretty much the same care as any other Halichoeres right? That fine fellow may make an appearance in my tank :D
It's a close cousin to Chrysus and Iridis. All 3 have similar behavior and size.

I had to go back and look. Some how I didn’t see that post. Maybe because I’m special or maybe under the influence or probably both

Love it! I never noticed you keep deep sand bed don’t you?
Yes it’s pretty deep in some spots. In the back corner where 2 of my wrasses bury it’s about 6”.

Are those Pandora's that have taken over the frag rack?
The bright pink ones are everlasting gobstoppers you can't tell in the photo, but they have a bright green mouth. The duller pink ones are playboy bunnies and there's also some king midas mixed in. I'm really glad I didn't let any of those grow off the frag rack because they grow like weeds. They've also covered the entire underside of the frag rack and are growing up the glass. That's determination.

All of those that you mentioned are as bad as Pandoras in a healthy tank lol.

The only good thing is that you can frag and trade them for store credit most of the time. I have also noticed that they can grow by my acros and do not bother them. As to where most zoas irritate the acros and cause stn. For that reason, I left an opps frag that fell onto my rocks and in-between them where it was. I now have gobstoppers growing under the massive Steve-a-pora and it covers the rock nicely lol.

I consider Gobstoppers to be in the Pandora class of growth for sure.

I started with 5p on my frag tank Overflow box early last year. They grew like crazy in every direction eventually up into the weirs and I didn't notice the slow water level rise until it was Maybe a quarter inch from the top of the glass. I scraped them All off and trashed them. A stray polyp got loose and is now growing around the mangrove trough. It looks cool but those bad boys will Grow!

I like the look of your rack.
