I have a blue headed wrasse in my 90g. he was pretty nasty until i got wrasses that were meaner than he is. lol They will eat inverts, at least mine does.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Don't triggers require much larger aquariums?

Triggers and most tangs too big for a 90gal.

The wrasses usually will be species specific as to how many of what kind you can have. For example, 5 years ago I bought 5 yellow canary wrasses, little ones. As they grew, two became males, the rest female. The big male eventually killed the other male. Another of the females became male and he killed that one. Now all is calm as the male has two females. Should have just bought three in the first place.

Ya I agree on the triggers and tangs, plus I've had no luck with tangs. Tried a kole first looked healthy and was eating right away then next morning was dead. Had a powder brown, tank crashed due to a skimmer malfunction (plug came off the bottom of the cup and dumped the whole cup back into system) and not much survived. then my half black mimic looked awesome and was healthy eating like a pig had him for a couple months then one day MIA, after some hunting I found him stuck to the powerhead with no signs of illness. I am so done with tangs, so **** sensitive I have a wife and two daughters so I'm right full on sensitive.

Anyways I do like the wrasse idea, my mckoskers was awesome and colorful, always out. I also like firefish but I think I'm right full on the sand bed. I like the look of chromis to but having then slowly kill each other off doesn't really appeal. I also don't mind the bengai cardinal fish, not a big fan of pajama cardinals though. I also looked into puffers recently (always wanted one, puffer is actually my last name) but I feel not worth the risk.

Lots of fishes in the sea. Blennies, wrasses, gobies, etc.
