    Hi all, recently something has been munching on my zoas. The only new fish Ive added to my tank are a blue mandarin and an exquisite fairy wrasse. The wrasse is a reef safe type and I thought the mandarin was a pretty safe bet as well. I havent seen any fish near them at all but I do also have...

    Overall my ever lingering algae problems are slowly subsiding, but I was thinking of adding a sea hare to finish it off, but was a little worried that my Melanurus Wrasse would quickly make for tank emergency. Is that the case? Or is it one of those things where if I throw it in there at night...

    Ladies and gentlemen: I've got a roughly 110-gallon display tank with a roughly 40-gallon sump. Water parameters are nearly perfect. 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, undetectable nitrate. No unwanted algae. I feed twice daily with frozen - mostly brine shrimp and a very small amount of Hikari Marine-S...

    My LFS sold me a wrasse, said it was a "Multi-color Wrasse", but I've had trouble identifying it online. Just curious as to exactly what kind it was... Thought maybe Multi-color Lubbock's fairy (?), but that doesn't quite look like this.. Thanks!

    my wrasse just came out of hiding after more than 2 weeks and I noticed these white lines on him that where not there when I got him. I don't know if its an illness or not because it is symmetrical on his body

    I got a coris wrasse 14 days ago and I have seen him once. He hid when I put him in then came out for days later at night but was hiding again by the morning. I knew they hid when put into a new tank but this long? When do I chalk it up as a loss and try a different one? my water is perfect I do...

    So I just bought a Coris Wrasse today (July 22) and he is just laying on his side on the bottom of the tank. I bought it from my lfs who just had it shipped in today. Could it just be still sedated from the shipping or is something wrong with him. I don't notice him breathing rapidly or heavily...

    I want to add a Vrolik's Wrasse to my 70 Gallon tank, but I also want to add a shrimp/goby pair. Would there be complication from the wrasse borrowing in the sand and the shrimp's tunnels? Or would the wrasse just try to eat the shrimp? I know that the wrasse may go after my hermit crabs and...

    Hey guys, my sump has an open top and is not underneath anything so the gas exchange is good but I want to have an open top on my DT when I get my new lights but I'm scared my Melanurus Wrasse and maybe even my Leopard Wrasse will jump out. Is this fear legitimate or is jumping just a rare...

    I've been reading advice on this forum for years but this is my first thread so I apologize if it is redundant or foolish. I've got a 60 gallon rimless cube tank that has been running for about 3 months. Nac3 skimmer, marine pure filtration block, and 40-45 lbs of dry rock that is already...

    So over the past three weeks I have had a few fish casualties. A fire fish, sunburst anthias, and a spotted mandarin. All of them were new additions to the tank and I attributed the deaths to them being too shy and being outcompeted for food (The mandarin passing wasn't a surprise, my tanks pod...
