    A couple of my wrasses hide most of the time because they are scared of the six-line wrasse. Will have to put the six-line in another tank soon.

    So who else has a wrasse bully?

    Sixlines seem to be one of the main offenders. Small but nasty.

    I have never had problems with six line wrasse. I think they need to feel secure with lots of hiding places

    My six line was very aggressive in the beginning ... But she chilled out now she is all good .. Maybe a little time is needed

    Got a fairly big Xmas wrasse. Bought 3 Blue Green Chromis from Lawrence in Ballito. Put them in tank and the wrasse chowed one in a flash. Now wrasse condemned to sump for now.

    Not sure which species you mean by Xmas wrasse (I've seen at least 20 species of wrasse called that), but if it's a large Thalassoma then their natural diet includes small fish (and basically anything else that moves).
