I had a fairy wrasse before n it was suppose to be a peaceful fish. It was fine for a week then my angel n clownfish started to act different. I was watching them n seen the wrasse run into my angel hard. I seen that n got him out n took him back ASAP. As soon as I did that my fishes went right back to their normal crazy selves. So if I were u I would take him out cuse he probably won't change IMO. It's probably just that one fish, maybe try exchanging him for a different but same fish.

After 3 years of no problems I had to do the same. Turned aggressive one day and had to go. They are difficult to catch. I would suggest finding the rock it sleeps in and waiting until lights out, then shine a flashlight on it to stun him and get him out. Good luck.

I was going to tell you to tag it, bag it, and send it to me. I miss my 6 line.

Well unless you don't plan on adding anything else he's still a problem.
