    [FONT=&quot]I want a fish that will swim between my live rock. i know that a six line wrasse and a jumping bean will do that ( is there any other fish that will do that?) but can they cause any problems with the other live stock i have in my tank is my tank to small or must i just choose the one i like best.

    Those are great choices for reef dwellers. ANd the ^-Line is one of the prettiest Wrasse around. :)

    Hi Mike - unfortunately, with the size nano you have there (24 gallon) you are basically already at maximum stocking level. IF you still want to add a fish, I would definitely say, go for the smallest one and one that would feed slightly less.... I think personally that this would be the sixline wrasse....

    BUT, perhaps we should wait for others to comment on this before you make a final decision.

    I've never had a 6 line but my jumping bean is awesome, he's a very active fish and constantly swims in and out of the rocks all over the tank.

    well you did pay alot,they go for about R250 here in Durbz.
    these fish readily take many foods like pellets and flakes,no special foods required

    yes you will find them pecking on your rockwork frequently,they enjoy doing so.
    Well here in Durbz,we dont really get robbed at the LFS, we usually get robbed at home.(being serious)
