Noted. I did notice he tends to get first pick of the food. The clowns don't stand a chance because of his sheer speed. Luckily they get a little food because the brine spreads around so much. Now the goby getting food is another story!

Do they mess with fish that have been in the tank with them or just newcomers

The reason they were fighting with the flasher wrasse is because they are Similar species. That will almost always happen. They normally don't fight tank mates as long as they don't look alike.

I have had my sixline for several months now. I got him from bluezooaquatics and all the fish arrived on their backs or on their sides. One clown was dead, and the other was barely alive, same as the sixline. I followed their instructions and acclimated anyway. After acclimating, I put them in the QT tank and the clown came to life. The sixline laid on his side for every bit of 24 hours.

Since then I had a strange die off in my tank, the only fish I have now are that sixline, a yellow watchman goby, and my royal gramma.

The flasher and the sixline are not really alike. The flashers look like small fairy wrasses. My mystery did not really look anything like my sixline and he killed him too. He never picked on the fish that were there before him just on the newcomers

I think it's more body shape than color. They all have the same sleek and long body.

My sixline is/was a bully to new fish. BUT after a few days he lays off. he bullied my butterfly, the red coris wrasse, the yellow coris wrasse as well as the midas i had in there for a short time. I think mine just trie to bully them to see if he can win but so far no luck. LOL

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Yeah, my guy is still indirectly bulling by stealing all the food from the clowns. He is just so darn fast!
