Six line wrasse

I picked one up today... I keep reading about all the great things these fish do... anyone have any experience with these???

Are there any fish I should avoid if I have one?

He's only 1.5" to 2", can I still add more fish or will he attack them??

I added mine to an established tank. The only issue was a damsel that kept after him. After about a month, he is not nearly harassed as much and in fact, finds time to chase the smaller of the 2 damsels around now. A very unsuspecting fish, cool to look at and has been known to munch the odd bristle worm here or there. They are jumpers, though I have no top on my tank, I have read people finding them on the floor.

To fail to plan is to plan to fail.

I have had mine for about 6 months now, no problems with anyone picking on him. He holds his own, mine is shy.

I have one also. My tanks' 40gallon breeder. 2 false percs, a royal gramma, and the 6-line wrasse.
the gramma and wrasse play around. at first i thought it was aggression but when I watched more closely, there was no nipping or any contact...more like a simple game of 'chase me!'
