6 line wrasse jumped out.

I woke up today and my wrasse jumped ship, she was my favorite fish but I think I'm going to go with another fish instead as my last.

Tank has been up about 6 months and I have 2 clowns, 1 randalls goby, and 1 firefish, anyone got any ideas for a last fish?

Look in the sig.

What about Cardinals? They are colorful, peaceful, and will get along fine with your other fish.

Sorry for the loss, Six lines are known to do that. Mine jumped into the overflow and I found it 2+ months later living in the sump.

As for fish I always like the royal gramma:

Jawfish:

or Green Clown Goby

Good Luck,

I was thinking of doing a mandarin. I grow maidens hair algae in both my mantis shrimp tanks to control nutrients and they are crawling with pods that I could use in my 37g.

Also maybe a flameback angel or a different kind of wrasse.

With any angel species, make sure you are willing to and able to take it back to the store, if it nips your corals. They are touch and go on being reef safe. Just a heads up.

The flame back is known to be the safest of the dwarf angels.

I think I decided I am going to go with an African leopard wrasse.

Best invest in some feeder shrimp for the first few weeks. You can taper in some thawed mysis shrimp and it should start eating prepared foods after that. Some of those can be cranky though. Bonus side is they like pods!
