    Hi there. Currently I got the following in my 150 liter tank:

    1 Copperband (my favorite!)
    1 Bi-color Angel
    1 Anthea
    1 Firefish (like to hide between the rock)
    2 Pajama Cardinal

    I used to have 7 fish in my tank but recently lost a 6 Line Wrasse.

    I would like to add something new and was considering a small Regal Tang, however I do not know how he will be welcomed by the Bi-color Angel. Does anyone have any suggestions? (I want some extra colour in the tank).

    I reckoned you're almost fully stocked already. Maybe consider a fairy wrasse of some sorts as probably your last fish.

    Thanks for the response. Will a Fairy Wrasse be able to "defend" himself against the Bi - Colour Angel?

    JS, thanks for the feedback. I did now some research on the Yellow Choris Wrasse and it looks good.Wonder how available they are. Cannot remember that I have seen one in Gauteng.

    I got a white belly yellow wrasse. Nice fish. Bigger than a sixline. Does not bother anyone and is not bothered by anyone.

    Aquaria in Krugersdorp had a few a couple of weekends back.

    a white belly yellow wrasse.
    actually got a faint tint of pink/purple to the white. Not pure brilliant white.
