Hi,
I am thinking if adding a sixline wrasse in the next couple of weeks to my tank. I have a lunare wrasse that is about 4" long, and just seems to be a nuisance and not a bully. The only problem I have had from it is how recklessly it swims. Please give your thoughts on adding a sixline, and the degree they will or will not get along.

Also, are sixlines good to take frozen and prepared food once they settle into a system?

Thanks for your input,
David

Well in my exp 6lines are generally nice docile fish that can take care of them selves,they rarely exceed 4 " as opposed to the T lunare that can get 12" or so, they can be troublesom as they get size, remember as fish grow they tend to need to increase their personal "zone"

He is a fatty!

I have a mandarin, do you think they could cancel out each others dietary supply? I have a friend with a 55 gal refugium that is the New York city of Pods, so I have been rotating rocks in and out of his system.

The lunare is going bye bye as soon as I can catch him, I guess I should mention that. He was a gift.

West Pat I emphatically agree with Geoff, the 6 line is not a shy,slow, picky eater like the mandarin and when the pods are all gone they will eat whatever is around.

thank you!! i am glad you liked it. i am hoping to update it soon. i will look forward to seeing your webpage!

i have been toying with turning the macquarium back into salt again. i figure a shrimp would be a nice little critter.

The mantle monster is pretty cool and I have viewed your site before!

Can anyone give me thoughts on catching a wrasse that will not go 3 inches from the live rock.

Thanks,
DAvid
