flasher wrasses

  1. General Reef Discussion
    While I am not ready to make a full fledged "Build" thread yet, I do want to get some suggestions going about what I should do for my 65g. I was planning on having a FOWLR, (and Inverts :D). The only things I KNOW I want are a small school of banghai cardinals and a coral-banded shrimp. Can...

    Reg and I have been planning to put together a 40 breeder system for months. A few weeks ago, I finally found a new job (working in the aquarium industry no less!). This means we finally have the means to do what we first envisioned for this project. First, we both work full time, go to...

    I'm looking for a link to a video of a flasher wrasse actually flashing. That is, not just displaying it's fins but changing colors as well. I showed my wife the pictures of a flasher wrasse in this link with it's normal coloration and then displaying it's colors or "flashing" and she still...

    Got a pair of Blue Flasher wrasses yesterday. I thought they would be hiding for a few days/weeks but they were both out and about yesterday, and have been ever since the lights came on today. They're also eating already. Kinda stoked about my first flashers, these guys are cool.! :D

    I am still up in the air on a reef or a fish only tank. I know the basics are setup the same: 3-4 months of cooking/curing/cycling Skimmer Flow testing Lighting, more flow, CA,Alk additives are additional for the reef. I want some really nice fish in the tank like a trigger or angels (If they...

Zebrasoma flavescens Yellow Tang; Paracheilinus carpenteri Carpenter’s Flasher Wrasse Harem; Pterapogon kauderni Banggai Cardinal (pair); Premnas...

    46 gal. bowfront "Reef" w/DSB. I say reef, but really all I've got that is reef-like are some zoos, shrooms, and yellow star polyps. I have a fighting conch, about 10 scarlet hermits, probably 5 blue hermits, a marshall island blue leg hermit and a few other typical small critters that come in...

    What is the minimum size tank that Anthias can be housed in? I know some can be housed in smaller tanks than others, but I wasn't sure which ones. I would only want one, and it would be in a 44 gallon for now, but would eventually go into a 135 gallon. (That could be 2 years or so before that...

    Okay...so the essance of this post is, what can I add to my 72 SPS tank? I've had the tank for over 2 years...as a result, I've had some losses. After I finally got the tank where I want it, the losses from that point on were beyond my control. I have: fish: 1 coral beauty 1 hippo tang 2...

    I currently have 2 fish in my 65. I have one 6 line wrasse and one clown. I think I have room for one more, unless you guys think I'm already at max capacity. I want it to stay small but be interesting. I use to have a bi-color blenny but had to take it back because it was nipping my crocea...
  16. General Reef Discussion
    Just wondering...and if you do what do you have and how many?!? Pics? I was thinking about adding a school (either green chromis, yellow tail damsels or something else)...I know, I know damsels are mean, but the yellow tails are supposed to be not as bad as others. Anyone have any...
