    Hi Guys,

    Thinking of getting a yellow tail wrasse (Anampses meleagrides) for my set up. LFS has one! Has any one kept them before. See that they require a sand bed to bury themselves and also seem fairly fusy about food! Can anyone give me some advise or some feedback. I also have a six line wrasse...will they be ok together?!?!:1:

    Hi inflames. The 6 line wrasse is a bit of a fighter. If the new wrasse is bigger than him, he should be ok. But if he is smaller, the 6 line will fight even causing death.

    When it comes to feeding, you can start him off with some Marine mix, and slowly move him on to flakes :)
