help!

My husband noticed a missing chromis this morning then just now before feeding the tank my six-line pelted one of my chromis into the glass twice!!! Is he going to keep picking off my chromis till none are left??? The chromis seemed a bit dazed but seems ok...

It is a good chance. Six-lines can be agressive to shy fish.

Chromis are a nice addition when in groups of 12 or more but if any less i believe larger fish tend to pick them off one by one. I had 10 blue/green chromis and one by one they started to disappear. My blue tang was eating them whole!!

Can you imgaine the size of the mouth on that blue tang?! Frightening! LOL! Pick to death is one thing, but whole?! My tangs have such tiny mouths I can hardly imagine! Sorry to hear about your 6-line-meanie. This is the second story I've heard of crazy mean wrasses (the other story I heard this week was a 4-line). So far my Exquisite Wrasse has been a model citizen. Whew!
