Got a new sixline wrasse!!

Got this new fish today at my lfs. He looks great and I gotta him at a good price. Just wondering what people thought about this fish? I almost got a yellow tang as they were on sale but stopped myself because I think most would agree 46g is a little to small a tank.

Good thinking on the yellow tang! The six line are nice. Got a pic? As they say... If I don't see it, it didn't happen.

Kind of a sketchy picture...... He is definitely not a fan of the camera.

I've heard six lines get pretty aggressive.

I honestly think more marine fish are prone to jumping as opposed to freshwater.

You will probably want a lid on the tank since most, if not all, wrasse are jumpers.

Great looking wrasse, though. Wish I could get one for my 24g to perhaps help with my flatworms, but they're very active and I heard they can nip at tubeworms.

Mine is not aggressive at all. I don't have a lid. Constant swimmer so you will almost never get s good pic. Always weaving through the rock work.i feed him mysis shrimp and he snags the occasional ghost shrimp I put in for my lion.
