Ok, Please vote and give personal experience of the Six Line Wrasse.



I do understand that all fish are different and react differently.

From what i've read and seen, perfectly reef safe fish! Can get a bit aggresive with new additions, but if added last should not be a problem :thumbup:

Just been doing a spot of reading on the 6 line, mainly other reefers experience a Jeckyl & Hyde character at best, some days fine, other days psycho, if it will be the very last fish in your tank, then probably ok, if you have any Dragonet/ wrasse already in your tank then beware, there are no guarantees in "reefsafe"

Ok here goes .I have a huge bugger.The ppl that has seen my six line will tell u its the biggest 1 that they have seen.
He is about 4 years old now I will try to get a pic to prove my claim.
Yes he is reef safe .Awesome at finding gogo's on clams .
But it is aggressive towards a lot of fish not just other wrasses.
He his the main killer in my tank of newly introduces fish.
On his list of hits is about 7 anthias 1 longnose hawkish and a female six line wrasse that was in the tank before him.He even fights with the flame angel.
I would sau add this fish last if u really want 1.

They are great, but i think they then limit anything else that can go in, you can't add another fish, just on the "hope" that the wrasse doesn't murder it

I agree with u 100% Wee-Man ,but it could depend alot on the size of the system and personality of the fish.
