    I was wondering if a Golden rhoimboid fairy wrasse would be ok with the three wrasse that currently get along in my tank (well as good as fish get along) a kathrines a sailfin and a Hawaiian flame.

    I have looked over evolveds wrasse chart and it seems like it would I’m just double checking as I am now addicted to the wrasses and can’t get enough of them.

    The tank is a 90 gallon right now but I have a custom 180 on order.

    Thanks

    Justin

    Definitely use a social acclimation box to introduce a new wrasse to existing wrasses.

    It should be fine, but the sailfin fairy can be on the aggressive side of the spectrum.

    That's more than big enough.

    Add food near it and only have 1 small piece of pvc in there, just enough to barely hide the new fish.
