I'd suggest a mandarin mate if you have a male. Females are pretty territorial and may harrass a male if introduced. As said before, pairs do a courtship dance that I've never seen, but supposedly it blows away Patrick Swayze and that Jennifer Gray chick.

I'm with dragonforce. With your tank size, another mandarin and a couple of six-lines would be great for your issue.

My six-line did get aggressive toward another wrasse and killed it but the other wrasse was introduced well after the six-line was established. You'll be adding them as new members. Besides, the little buggers are only 1"-1.5" long. I think they could find some room in your place. VERY cool fish also. Love mine!

Concur mate for the mandarin. some one correct me, but in your size tank I would think you could probably get away with a couple of pair. Otherwise scooter blennys are a type of dragonette as well, although not as attractive.

I will probably do a mate for the mandarin and possibly a six-line. Do the six-line wrasse eat prepared food ok?
