My brand new Red Sea max 650 is arriving on Friday, which will replace my first 55g tank. My current fish stock is 2 yellowtail damsels, a six line wrasse and two black percula clowns. Basically I have 5 ****** fish that will be moved into the new tank.

I would like some advice on what fish based on any experiences you've had might be a good fit with them. I'm guessing some of the more sedate fish like cardinals and blennies might be a struggle. Do I go big fishes with attitude? Small and quick into rock fishes?

Or do I try and re home them and start with a blank slate? They can also live in the smaller tank for a while if adding them after newer additions would help.

Depends what you want to stock. I would keep the perc's as they can usually mix with most fish in a big tank.

If you want more wrasse like fairy's or leopards, ect. Then I would re-home the sixline.

Yellowtails can be fine as well unless you have a particularly nasty one. Not uncommon to see them in tanks to add a splash of color.

You could look into a foxface and Genicanthus angelfish.

Are there any wrasses that would be compatible with my beloved yet psychotic Sox line?

Foxface is on the list, never read anything on those angels before, intial review makes them sound interesting, thanks buddy!

The general consensus from wrasse masters is no don’t do it
