    Seen a few leopard wrasses around the bay area.

    Which leopard do you like the most?

    I have an ornate leopard wrasse but my favorite are the black leopard wrasses.

    I have always been a fan of the Tanaka as well ss a few less aggressive flashers... but have never been a fan of putting a lid or netting over thevtank ☺

    I do like the Black one but it would similar to the Marine Betta i just picked up. My favorite would be Potters and Kuiter's followed by just the Blue Star and then the Regular leopard

    Ive read the potters and chaoti are hard to keep. How much of an established tank should I have before introducing one of these?

    I see Watenabe angelfish on your list.
    Better to get a trio of small females: the dominant female will turn male.
    Just my $0.02

    So today I stopped by AC on the way home and thought if I see something I like maybe I'll get it. First I see the most colorful pink margin. Total standout. As I'm getting that I see a wrasse I've never seen before. A pintail wrasse. Super colorful and it wasn't just one. They had a pair of them. All are in qt and eating. So stoked
