Six-Line Wrasse Tank Mates in The Reef?

I added a fary wrasse to my tank which has a six line wrasse. I had to remove him because the six line nearly ripped him apart. Nasty little guys IMO.

It doesn't always come down to size in nature. A small damsel fish can terrorize a big angel. It really depends on the fish. But trying to catch him afterwards could be a pain.

I had to catch mine, used a 2 liter bottle with the top cut off and flipped around. Put some food Inside and let it sit. Took about an hour till he went in. I had to get mine out cause he was terrorizing a firefish and fairy wrasse. Funny thing he was fine until I added a foxface to the tank, then he went nuts on the other fish.

Thats an odd story, I love my six-line I just hope he doesn't snap one day and start effin things up. So far he's very chill and laid back, but I wanna be careful.
