    I'll be honest it wasn't my first choice but now it is my favourite in my tank. Awesome character and entertaining to watch. It swims very different to the other fish and also it goes in between all the rocks and gaps. As for care it seems very Hardy and isn't bothered by anything. Feeds well too. I would def recommend that you get one.

    6line wrasses are awesome! They are always swimming in & out of the rockwork & eat tiny inverts...
    Tank is coming along nicely dre. Just make sure to keep your calcium, magnesium & alk levels on par for the lps corals as they will die if there isnt enough calcifying elements to build their sceletons with!

    Keep up the good work!

    Thanks. OK cool. I am going to start dosing now to keep those levels up.

    What other interesting fish would you guys recommend I should get?

    Well, thats more personal opinion than anything else, but one of my new favourits fish is my longnose hawkfish...
    Another VERY cool fish is a midas blenny! They are one of the bussiest fish iver ever seen & is almost always in the open where they can keep an eye on their surroundings!

    Some other nice nano fish:
    Purple or normal firefish
    Ocellaris clowns
    Sandsifting gobies
    Prawn gobies
    Banggai cardinals
    Jawfish (difficult to keep sometimes)
    Candy basslets (expensive & rare)
    Algae blennies
    Tailspot blenny
    Mandarin fish (needs to be fed live foods in nano's)
    Carpenters flasher wrasse (very cool fish)
    Flame angel (can be agressive & not always reef safe)
    Clown gobies
    Court jester goby
    Twospot goby
    This is a nice fishlist imo.
