have any species in mind or is this as a whole? a very broad question, the only possible way as most introductions of two of the same species may be introducing at the same time..?

yes i do have specific species in mind but also would like to know the general rules of thumb.

i am pondering the possibility of adding 1-4 of the following

Cirrhilabrus solorensis
Cirrhilabrus cyanopleura
Cirrhilabrus exquisitus
Cirrhilabrus lineatus
Cirrhilabrus laboutei
Cirrhilabrus rubrisquamis
Cirrhilabrus scottorum
Cirrhilabrus lyukyuensis
Paracheilinus carpenteri

My vote goes for the carpenter and you can add two at the same time of these species (preferably male and female).

a mated pair usually has no troubles being introduced..

i'd check out the exquisite wrasse..

but if your willing to throw a little money around.. harlequin tuskfish.. a beautiful wrasse.. he's an aussie fellow though so the $$ might be quite high in the U.S.

For as vicious-looking as the harlequin is, he's an awfully shy fellow! :P
