    Was curious if anybody has had experience with these 2 types of wrasse together. I added a leopard wrasse to my 75g with my tamarin wrasse. The tamarin darts at the leopard quite often. I assume it's due to the similar dot pattern they have. Is it normal for this kind of aggression when first introducing a wrasse with another or should I be worried?

    they will figure out their pecking order. I have 4 wrasses in my tank and the first day is rough, after that they are fine

    Agreed. I have leopards and tamarins together and it is fine.
