Yes some of them are definatly not recommended for the beginner. Unfortunately some of the most beautiful ones are the most difficult.

Sixline wrasse are ok for a beginner in my opinion.

Absolutly, it was second in my tank after my clowns. Its still one of my favorites and very easy to care for. Although an 8 gallon tank is too small for a sixline.

I also dont really agree with the statement that six lines are only for experts. I have had my sixline for well over a year and the only thing they really require is high water quality which isn't all that difficult to maintain.

Well he never specified a sixline. He said wrasses in general. Which is partly true, some species of wrasse are for expert only.

Yes I have too but how long do they live? I know someone that had 2 clowns over 20 years old one recently died. They were both in at least 55 gallon tank I really think if you decide to do a small tank like that you might be able to get by with one Saltwater Aquarium Corals for Marine Reef Aquariums: Neon Blue Goby - Tank-Bred but in reality that tank is 20% less than a 10 gallon think about taking 20% of your home away and see how stressful it becomes.
