Six Line Wrasse

I have just bought a six line wrasse and I think it is a great addition. I have done some research before purchasing and my understanding is that it is a peaceful fish. Although it might feed on unwanted pests on the LRs, I am not aware it is aggressive to inverts such as shrimps and other fish. However, my friend tells me otherwise. He thinks the six line will make meals out of my shrimps and is recommending me to return it. Has anyone had any experience with the six line?

I've seen some pretty agressive behavior with them and added one very cautiously to my eel tank. I've got the fish trap at the ready though if he starts picking on others in the tank. We'll see.

Well, I haven't seen any aggressive behavior. But the six line is only 1.5" long. He is getting some beating from my clarkii instead.

Mine leaves my 2" cleaner shrimp alone, but I put in 2 small peppermint shrimp. One lasted about 2 seconds before the 6-line grabbed it and pulled it into the rock, never to be seen again. The other peppermint got chased into the overflow, and now lives in my sump.

AS he gets bigger he will take off after the two inch ones.

Some times the truth is not encouraging. But as others have stated they have not had a problem so wait and see what happens. Just be ready to act if needed.
