    If it is the same wrasse I am thinking of stay away. They grow very large and lose their colouring. Definitely not a fish I would want in my Reef.

    I don't think you read what the guys said, they are considered good eating, that says it all.

    We find them in the rock pools in Zululand. Quite a lot of different ones, beautifull, violent, hard to catch once in your tank and does not allow any other fish to have any food. Lovely but lethal.
