Just about any of the flashers (except maybe a male eight-line for friendly, or a Bell's for "reasonably priced"...), and there are lots of other fairies to choose from as well. Pintail, orange-backed and exquisite are a few that come to mind. (You'll probably have to buy the pintail as a youngster/female, and wait for it to transition...) Some of the wrasses in the Halichoeres genus could work well, but may take an unhealthy interest in some of your CUC. Possum wrasses (Wetmorella) are timid and cryptic, but not unreasonably priced by and large, and almost completely harmless. Leopard wrasses are often reasonable as well, and pretty safe for the most part - but can be difficult to acclimate.
You've got _lots_ of choices! Explore!!!
I love the pintails, but finding them around Indiana is hard under $100. I know NYA sometimes has them for cheap, but I don't trust them. I think i'll add another flasher being a Carpenters or Yellowtail.
Thoughts on housing melanurus wrasse and labout's fairy wrasse together.
Orange spot blennie
4 carberryi anthias
Would still like to add
Regal angel Red Sea and at the same time if I can find all 3 at once.
Red Sea reefer 525xl
No issue there; will be fine.
They are both beautiful fish, especially for what they usually sell for IMO.
Any concerns using copper safe with them in QT
It should be fine, just double the time it takes to bring the copper level up.
I was planning on adding a screen top to my tank because of adding more wrasses.
I knew I had to do it, but because of not having problems with leopard wrasses in the past I was putting it off.
I didn't want to inconvenience myself by having to move a screen top just to feed or move a coral or even put the magnet cleaner in the tank.
I waited too long.
A couple days ago I found my larger meleagris wrasse behind the tank.
I guess the larger bipartitus had a issue with it and they settled it when I wasn't around.
I really didn't see this coming. The first few days everything was really mellow.
But a couple days ago I noticed the bigger meleagris wrasse was missing.
So now there are 3.
2 bipartitus and 1 meleagris.
Not sure if they would have ironed out the pecking order if a screen top had prevented the wrasse from jumping.
Now the 3 that are remaining seem to be getting along fine. They are always very close to each other with no real aggression.
New accusations in Qt
Red Head Solon
Eight line Fairy wrasse female juvi
Hopefully I won't need to use copper at all.
Eight line flasher, you mean.
And I'd caution against the mystery.
My Melanurus, Basket, Pintail, Guineafowl Leopard, Exquisite, and Rosy Margined Wrasses.
He did say it was an accusation...
That's not an exquisite wrasse, but rather it is C. melanomarginatus, blackfin fairy wrasse.
Flasher, yes my bad
I gather that you mean the aggressiveness of the Mystery wrasse, so not like Tangs adding last and with other wrasse at the same time does't help?
LOL you know I mean acquisition, if you don't proof read Siri she will do her own thing
Looking for stocking advise.
Standard 180g. Already have a line spot and would like to now some ideas for other wrasses that will work well. I for sure want a couple leopards. After that pretty open.
Other fish in the tank will include a couple tangs, tailspot blenny, probably a couple anthias.
Oh, and would love a mystery wrasse, not sure if possible though.
