    I have 2 Bannana Wrasses and I must say that they are probably my fave fishes. Sleek, streamlined and quick.

    I was hoping to get some other wrasses but am not sure which ones would be compatible with these and also with my reef (mostly softies but moving towards SPS soon)

    Any help based on experience please ...

    Leopard wrasses (Macropharyngodon) and tamarins (Anampses) are also really nice and peaceful. Make sure they're eating well at the LFS though, unless you have a lot of LR and pods. Once they're feeding well they're pretty hardy, but it can be tricky to get them to that point.
