Hi reefers,

I'm about to add the last group of fish to my 120 gallon: a few fairy wrasses. I've done some research in the threads of @evolved
Please look in the picture below, I've marked the fish I want on the chart. Is this okay?

Current stocking:
- 2 clownfish (occelaris)
- 1 banded goby (amlygobius phalaenae)
- 1 foxface (siganus magnifica)
- 1 purple tang (zebrasoma xanthurum)
- 4 randall's anthias (pseudanthias randalli)
- CUC: cleaner shrimp, sandsifting starfish, hermit crabs, snails.

Other possible suggestions are also welcome!

TiA!

C. rubeus is a wild card. I've seen them stay mild mannered and I've seen them become jerks towards anthias and other wrasses. The rest of your proposed wrasses should be fine together. I would recommend using an acclimation box as you stock your wrasses. Once you get them post pics in The Wrasse Lovers Thread- we love seeing them!

Thank you for your insight! Too bad for the rubeus, I love it's looks! But plenty of others to choose from... they are all invert safe?
Can fairy wrasses be with other wrasses? Flasher wrasses or macropharyngodon?

Yes, plenty to choose from! Fairy wrasses are invert safe. You can mix fairy wrasses with flasher wrasses, I would just avoid the species in red and dark orange in Hunter's chart for best results. Fairy wrasses will also mix with macropharyngodons.
