Banana Wrasse

Hey would a Banana Wrasse and Mystey Wrasse work in a 46 gallon?
And what about a spotted boxfish? Thanks!!

definately no on the spotted boxfish.....check out the link:

http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...?pcatid=77&N=0


and as far as the wrasses go, liveaquaria says "with caution" but I would probably say no just because the banaa wrasse is listed as "aggressive".

I believe that all boxfish (at least to my knowledge--someone please correct me if I'm wrong) are poisonous when stressed or die. It's just a chance I wouldn't take myself.

Almost all of them are rated for expert only which means it is a hard fish to keep alive. Two wrasses in a 46 might be tough also.

I would just do one in that size tank. Any fish listed as aggressive I would not add to my tank. JMO
