    There are so many other wrasses that provide the same usefullness without the attitude od a sixline.

    12lines aren't nearly as bad, as that's another common name for a juvenile melanurus wrasse.

    Oh I see. Thanks.

    Good thing I'm not in a hurry to add one this time, so I have plenty of time to do research.

    So far, as recently suggested, a 12 line and pink streak are mentioned. What are the other wrasse that will work in a 65 gallon?

    Halichoeres chrysus, H. leucurus, H. leucoxanthus, H. cosmetus, and H. timorensis are few others that will help with coral pests.

    Thank you! She was sold as c. lunatus. When I posted a "baby picture" back in October the general consensus was c. cf lunatus.

    Picked up a beautiful pin tail and a flasher at the LFS. They’re doing great in QT so far. Both are active and eating well.

    So after the loss of my royal flasher (https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/flasher-wrasse-being-bullied-by-tankmates.356039/) I'm thinking about what to replace him with. The plan originally was to have two flashers of separate species if possible. Would this have worked in a 3ft/90cm tank (obviously using a social acclimation box for the second introduction)? If so are there any pairings that should be avoided? If two won't work in my tank I think I'll hold out for another royal, which seem to be quite uncommon here in the UK, as he was a stunning fish.

    And a Pink Streaked (Pseudocheilinops ataenia) Wrasse too!!
    Very useful fish, much like a 6line, but without all the drama...

    That Eightline is tempting.....

    Also, not wrasse related, but that candy basslet is *almost* affordable.

    Expect all diamond tails to sell in less than 45 seconds...
    Until their collection becomes more common, or someone starts captive breeding them, they will always sell like hotcakes!
