Would a pink fairy wrasse work with a dwarf antenatta lion and snowflake eel. Before anyone sees "wrasse" and is like "NO". Please consider all wrasse's are not temperamental. But if in your honest opinion this is a bad idea. I won't attempt it. The wrasse I am looking at is 4 inchs my snowflake is 6 inchs.

Liveaquaria says peaceful, but I don't consider them the perfect source.

I have a blue sided fairy wrasse who occasionally will run at my other fish (ocellaris clown, bangaii cardinal and ochre striped cardinal), but only for a second and never long enough to induce much stress, so I think you'd be okay as far as aggression that way. I'd be more concerned about the lion eating him.

Yea I wouldn't worry about the wrasse bullying anyone in that tank. I would also worry that he will one day be lunch.

Cool, I am happy to here this. The lion only gets 6-7 inch. Hopefully this wouldn't be an issue. One more question. If I decided against the wrasse, could I get a fox face? It would go along with my predator/venomous tank.

Fairy wrasses are fine to have with any fish. I have 10 wrasses in my reef tank. They are all peaceful with each other and all the other fish. The smallest fish i have is a tiny neon goby and they dont even mess with him. I wouldnt worry about it. I have 3 fairy wrasses, 3 flasher wrasses, 1 mystery wrasse, 1 leopard wrasse, 1 christmas wrasse, 1 yellow coris wrasse plus all the rest of the fish i have and everybody gets along
