Six Line For Flatworms?

I have been told six line wrasse eat flat worms....And they look cool too!

I have a 10 gal nano, that is extremly stable, it is almost a year old and only has a neon dottyback, and a peppermint shrimp, a couple snails and hermits too.

Would my tank be able to support another small fish. I feed only what I can see my fish eat, three times a week. And I do 10 % changes each week.

I am only worried about my dottyback terrorizing it. Can a six line stand up to a dottyback?

I'd be concerned too since the dottyback has already established himself.

Dottyback is extremely mean and territorial IME. I don't think you can add any fish to such a small tank while the established dottyback is still there

I wouldn't do it. I think you're just askin for trouble. Your tank may be able to support one more fish but I would get something that has a little more kung fu skills.

I have a sixline in my nano (put in for isopod control) and I love it. However, as mentioned, not a great choice with the dotty in there already.

He has been pretty accepting of the shrimp...he only gave it a good look over when I first added it....im not sure how he would react to another fish though.

If not it is no big deal.....the dottyback is great in there by himself.

I am gonna have to start vacuuming up the flatworms!
