Dragon wrasses typically eat live food which can be an issue. But if you find one that eats frozen you'd be set.

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

What exactly does live food entail in saltwater aquariums anyway? I haven't really come across any feeder fish that could be cheaply and regularly obtained

People will feed live ghost shrimp and live brine shrimp for the smaller fish.

I have a 90g fowlr. All aggressive fish. I have a bristletooth tang, squrrel fish, hogfish and a bunch of different non reef safe wrasses. I also have a single clown and an engineer goby in the tank. Wrasses are a great active fish and depending on which ones you chose you can have a few.

Ok Thanks

So, does a dragon wrasse count as a "smaller fish"? Also, what sort of filteration do you have? Thanks!

A dragon wrasse starts out kinda small but gets quite large, I just saw one that was about 6 inches at least. Too bad he was only eating live or I would have jumped all over him. lol

I am running an old 20g tank setup as a sump. i run an eshopps psk 150 skimmer and a filter sock. Thats it.

would two filters that add up to about 195 gallons and a good skimmer do the trick for my listed fish? I'm not familiar with saltwater filtering. Plus i'll start of with about 200$ of live rock

Hey man, I've had a Picasso trigger in my 100 gal, and trust me, IMO you shouldn't get it. I had countless problems with it. However if you really want it, I'd get it tiny, it will help.
