Reef-Safe Wrasse??

Hello All,

Is their such thing as a reef-safe Wrasse that is not a "carpet surfer"?

Thanks in Advice

I think with wrasses a lot of it comes down to luck, but I've had no problems with a six-line in an open-top reef.

I've had a six-line, a scott's velvet, and a solorensis (sp?) before. All were fine in my reef.

my six-line isn't a jumper at all, and the back of my tank is open for airflow and equipment.

Some of us aren't as lucky as others, I guess.

If you are worried you could always use eggcrate to stop anything jumping out.

Yeah, but its not very "eye pleasing". Are other Wrasses as bad as 6-lines at going airborne?
