I had a sixline in my last tank, very beautiful and interesting fish. Especially when they cocoon themselves at night.

Yep, in the wild it prevents predators from catching their scent while they sleep. They actually secrete some kind of thick stuff from their mouths and it wraps around them. Kinda icky and cool at the same time. Lol.

Not sure actually. Looked on LA, and they have the compatibility with other wrasses listed as "with caution". Considering the price of some of these fish, not sure I'd want to risk it.

Does it matter what order I put in the foxface Lo, engineer goby, and bangaii cardinals? Cause I want to get them all as small as I can and he usually has at least one of those fish as babies.

Put the most aggressive in last and least aggressive first, go that way and the aggressive ones can't establish a territory. It's really cool when they cocoon, just looks like a bubble round a fish, but they hide really deep into the rocks.

Cardinals first, then goby, then foxface.
