Only one tang and no Fox face if you do BTW.

As far as wrasses, stick with carpenter/fairy wrasses. They will be the least issue with mobile inverts.

Cheers
Steve

the Scott's Fairy Wrasse is very colorful and reef-safe. You may also want to look at the Royal Gramma, it is a Baslet and a wonderful fish.

Six-line wrasse is reef-safe too, and only gets to 3". pretty interesting coloration too IMO.

I had a Scotts Fairy... Great looking fish but remeber they are jumpers. Mine jumped through the top where I had a 1/2 gap on the hood. He landed behing the tank and it took me a while to get him out. He lived through the night and died the next day
I'm looking for another one an this time I will put more eggcrate on the top to keep him in.
I have a blue sided wrasse in my fowler its a nice fish...

Depends on your current fish stock. Adding that many could tax your biofilter too much.

That said though, if you have the available space you can get a male and 2-3 females of the same species of carpenter/fairy wrasse. They will get along as long as there is only one male.

Cheers
Steve
