    I'd bet against it being a Sea Grass, but I don't know what it is. Post it on the ID Wrasse thread on R2R. That dude's amazing.

    Mostly. Many of the species are aggressive, eat invertebrates and clams, and'or are destructive to corals even though they don't eat them.

    Heck -- like anything else some of the reef safe ones aren't reef safe. My Christmas wrasse just ate three gorgeous clams.
