I think having other fish in tank can help get them more comfortable out and about.
I wondered that.. wondered if I put one of them in the DT it'll be OK after a few days.
I may be getting a pair of clowns for my nano tank in a few days. Debating on having them share a QT too.
i've used black water mollies as they also can serve as an indicator of any disease that may have made it through QT and they won't extend the QT period.
hey all I am looking to add 3-4 wrasse to my 100 gallon tang in the near future. Here is my list to choose from that I liked:
I was looking to introduce 2 at a time or maybe all at the same time ? suggestions
bluestreeak cleaner wrasse
exquisite fairy wrasse
bluehead fairy wrasse
lineatus fairy wrasse
Mystery wrasse and green wrasse are aggressive toward other wrasses.
Cleaner wrasses do better in larger systems with more client fish.
everything else is good to put together? how about a 4 or 6 line wrasse?
Everything else is fine.
4 and 6lines are aggressive toward other wrasses.
Where does blue thorat sailfin place on the compatibility chart? @eatbreakfast @evolved
Tried to catch some photos of my Laboute's fairy yesterday (All those folks who can take good photos of wrasses, you have my deep respect!!), mainly because he's got a heavy black wash these days that he didn't have when he arrived from LiveAquaria:
He's a fairly dominant fish - especially so when it comes to the smaller pintail wrasse - though I've seen him meet his match when arguing about a favorite sleeping spot with a Talbott's damsel about a third of his size! Just wondering (along with showing off a beautiful fish and my poor photography skills) whether the black is something related to dominance / subordination, related to diet or comfort level ... or whether it's just one of those things that happens with these guys, as it seems to do with Naoko's wrasse?
This guy isn't _precisely_ a wrasse - though he is a labrid - and he posed _so_ nicely, I thought I'd throw him in as well:
Finally seem to have a healthy and hearty Quoy's parrotfish!
Comparable to rubripinnis.
The black is related to dominance and bright light.
Ah, so probably not comparable with a naoko in a 90g then?
I would advise against that combination.
Congratulations on the Quoyi! I am thinking about giving it another try. Such a cool fish.
TJ, so the black on the Laboutei is the same phenomenon as the black on P. attenuatus? I think it looks good on the Laboutei but not as good on the flasher.
This guy's 180 degrees from the last one I had - eats virtually anything _except_ nori on a clip and the broccoli they put in the frozen fishfood blends, and competitively. He's right in there with everyone else when the yum starts spewing from the returns, dashing, dipping and diving for each treat - and throughout the day, he's hammering away at the rock - not scraping it down to the white, but knocking out any film algae, and probably some coralline. (He completely ignores the hair algae on the back glass, and the sargassum growing on the Florida liverock!)
Yes, similar to attenuatus. It's something that happens with a few deeper water species when they exposed to uv spectrum lighting.
I am glad to report back that i have all 4 of these wrasse in my 180g playing nice now. Huge thank you to eatbreakfast and Hunter Hammond (the wrasse compatibility chart) for confirming this will work before i got the fish.
I thought I would share a video of the wrasse I had in my previous reef. I hope to have a similar group in my new 180g. I love wrasse!!
This is my current lone wrasse.
That was a very pretty grouping - and your current fellow's not too shabby, neither!
Those clams, tho!!
Id male or female and how much are they worth?
Philippines crescent tailed fairy wrasse.
Certainly the larger is a male. The smaller may still be a female, or may already be in transition, as most fairies do ... as to what they're worth, I've little to no idea.
