Other way around. Sixline wrasses are pretty bulletproof compared to a lot of others, although flasher wrasses aren't difficult to keep either. Flashers cost a lot more, typically. Sixlines can be pugnacious with other tank mates, so stock with caution. If you are considering a flasher wrasse, it is more peaceful typically, but be sure to research the exact species, as some get quite a bit larger than others. You'll want to stick to a smaller one for a 30 gal.

I haven't read through all 100 pages of this, but if you are even considering a wrasse, you'll need a cover if you don't already have one.

Alright, I think I'll just stick with a six line then. Thanks though! My list right now is..
1 true perc(bought)
1 Bangaii cardinal(bought)
1 purple firefish(might Change)
1 6 line wrasse(might change)
1 yellow watchmen goby ( might change)

I want a more colorful goby or Benny, any suggestions? I heard firefish will hide in groups of one, what could I do instead or should I just not get that fish?

This thread has strayed off topic many times since the last warning. If you would like to chat, that's fine- we have a chat room here, or there's Facebook, instant messaging, etc. A build thread is not the place for chit chat.

Last warning- please keep this thread on topic or it will be closed.

Update

I bought a scooter blenny! I was looking at the ywg but he didn't seem very healthy and was quite small. The blenny looks great and is lively. I should probably take some pictures soon, it's been awhile.
