    Hey all! Happy Halloween!

    So I've gone wrasse=crazy. I love em! i've got a Yellow Coris Wrasse and a Melanarus Wrasse and a Six line Wrasse and my tank bioload is pretty low-medium so I can add a few more wrasses. Can anyone recommend any other wrasses that I can add to my wrasse group where they will all get along? Is there any chance I can buy another Melanarus Wrasse to add to my group or will they fight? Thanks in advance!

    Either or. I just need wrasses that I know will thrive in my current environment and not get beat up by the tankmates. Thanks. I've lost a Tamarin wrasse (deteriorated slowly over 6 months), McCosker's and a Ornate Wrasse (both died within a day of acclimating) so I need hardier wrasses that won't die on me...

    I don't know if hardier wrasses will do the trick if you say that you have aggressive fish in your tank already. I would suspect the six lines:)
    You can try getting larger wrasses like 4-5" x-mas, temminck, red margin, leopard, and orange back. You would probably want to keep them in acclimating box for a week after QT to make sure no aggression.

    Ive never had any luck with the Tamarin's. Sixline's are bullys. My orange back didn't care for any wrasse that looked like him for a few months. How big is your tank?

    Thanks Mark. this chart will really come in handy. Can I have two Melanurus Wrasses in the same tank? or a Melanurus with a Christmas Wrasse or other Halichoeres Wrasses?
