The male is AMAZING! If we bought a smaller female, the larger one would turn male correct?

In theory yes.. If you were to add a female to ur current tank with an established female already, it might beat it up haha it's better to add them same time and have a group of three

We had a Dragon Wrasse aswell a year ago, was beautiful, but I deffently second the fact that they move everything they can around in the tank, but we tore down that pred tank it was a 90 gal and sold the fish miss him and hop to get home for our new pred tank.

The Golden my boyfriend Wrasse are so very much beautiful and just peaceful to watch, she was my boyfriends wrasse.

The Six line wrasse we have now is our second, we had one in our old 75 aswell, bigger than this one. There so fast you can never get a good pic of them lol that on is croped so you can actualy see her lol. She used to be in the seahorse tank but was moved to the 120 as she got bigger (we got her realy small) lol and always popbellied lol anyways she got more agressive towards our H. comes seahores.

Sorry for the lousy quality. These were taken with an iPhone and these suckers won't stay still!

My melanarus wrasse:


My blue-sided fairy wrasse. This shot kind of makes him blend in with my background.

If they were the same price, I would definitely have the flame too! I paid $37 for the melanarus. The only time I've seen flame wrasses, they have been in the three digit range.

When I first got the melanarus in the tank, the blue-sided chased him a little, even though the melanarus is a little bigger. Now, the melanarus is definitely the boss. He doesn't chase non stop, but he will run at the blue-sided for a second when he gets within about 4" of him. I'd like to add an exquisite and a Carpenter's or McCoskers as well.

I've been fortunate enough to see this reef in person twice. They have more wrasses than you can shake a stick at and some I've never even heard of. pretty much all fairies and flashers.

@Hwndiver: Stunning flame wrasses. I'm jealous.

I wouldn't hesitate to get a leopard wrasse (preferably eating frozen food) if my LFS had them, but I haven't found any...Might have to go online shopping in the future...
