    SM Pintail
    SM Carpenter
    SM Labouti
    SM Rhomboid
    Red Cigar
    Yellow Coris
    SM Tri-color
    SM Hawaiian Christmas

    Having been a LFS owner, I’ve seen most of them...
    But 2 of my favorites were an adult red Coris 16”....just a beautiful animal
    And another red Coris adult that would swim about and then start chasing its tail...just like a dog!

    Just my $0.02
    I’ve found that the fairy and flasher wrasses are more interesting and behave more naturally when there is a group of the same species rather than a collection of random individuals
    Again, just my opinion

    It’s your tank
    You have to look at it and care for it!
  8. I'd love a red coris again, but they are just terrors in the tank. No doubt one of the most beautiful fish in the hobby though. When the lights hit them just right they just don't look real. As to the flashers, you're right I'm sure. In a tank of multiple species there's always one who flashes occasionally ( they do build a loose, but fairly benign hierarchy) , but the others don't (at least in my tank.) On the other hand, you do get an assortment of incredible colors!

    I don’t have a nice wrasse myself, but I do admire other people’s wrasses whenever I can

    I just got my first wrasse, I am way behind most of you... It was sold to me as a Flasher Wrasse but I am unsure if that is actually what it is. I'll post a picture later for ID

    Also a question: Do you guys have any compatibility issues with having all these wrasses together or is there not a worry?
  17. So.... this isn't a simple yes or no question, but it boils down to this -- if you have a large enough tank, AND (most important) if you choose the right species (fairy's, flashers, etc), AND you take the right steps to introduce them, AND you keep them well fed, AND there's plenty of rockwork, THEN it's not much of a worry, BUT individual results may vary.
  18. Oh -- and always start with a plan....

    What do you mean by them being terrors in the tank? What's the issue with them? Looked them up and they're amazing and now I want one, but wondering what the issue is

    I tend to bend and sometimes break the rules. Bigger tanks certainly helps but if one fish is he’ll bent on not liking the other it won’t matter.
