six line wrasse question

I was thinking about adding a cleaner or fire shrimp to my tank. Would it be ok with my wrasse? The only other fish in the tank is a o. clown and a yellow watchman gobie.

Six lines are usually fine with crustaceans as long as they are close to the same size as one another. If too small it could be a risk but they usually co-exist quite well.

i think it just depends on each fish my wrasse was fine with the shrimp, however when i add another shrimp it didnt go so well.

I would love to get another six-line wrasse, but my tank cant take it right now.

They will eat flat worms, which is a plus! They wont mess with your snails or shrimp from what I have seen. But here is a link for more info on them, if you still have questions: http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...cfm?pCatId=375
