My LFS has em all the time. They quarantine their new arrivals for a week before selling them, lots of deworming and parasite treatment along with disease treatment. I have never seen a fish there die of disease of parasites, only dead fish are ones bullied to death by the other fish. This particular store specializes in sw and only sells sw fish and inverts along with coral and supplies. The owner and his wife both have kept reef tanks for over 20 years and their employees have kept reefs going for over 2 years at least.

I had a female longfin fairy wrasse that did amazing, only problem was she and my yellow coris ate all the mandrin food (copepods) and he began to starve so he went in my friends sumo and grew fat and began to get quite large before a hitchhiking rock crap snagged him. Anyways, wrasse's are awesome. I love how they explore and dart through the coral and rock. If I still had my sw tank up no doubt I would have lots of wrasse's. A creole wrasse is also very interested, yet hard to find, I kept one but didn't know enough about them and he died before I realized they can become extremely depressed when kept alone as they are very very social fish, and need to be kept in groups of at least 3, they are gorgeous though. As juveniles they are purple, pink, and yellow and as adults they look more like anthis but are primarily purple/blue, black, and yellow

I share the same thoughts about wrasse with you they are great. When mine flash each other it's like foil in the sun it's so cool. They just dart around the tank and swirl around each other. The one thing I hope doesn't become an issue is that the wrasse at the bottom of this picture was in the tank alone for along time. It grew and is fairly decent size now. But it never took on the colorations or filament of a male. The wrasse above I bought and he without a doubt had all the physical signs of being a male although he was at least half the size of the wrasse I already had. I recently posted about my smaller wrasse because I was worried for him. I feel as though my larger one is clearly trying to show dominance over the smaller and they are basically switching roles. Now my smaller wrasse is losing coloration while the bigger is gaining. At least in my eyes but I don't even know if this is possible. I don't really want to get too far off topic of this thread though. If you guys want to talk about it I would love to in the thread I started about my Mccoskers.

This isn't my tank. But the one at my psychiatrist's office. They seem to have lost a couple of fish. But have 2 adult guppies and at least two guppy fry along with a pink glo getra. I just had to share. I love watching their fish. And was so excited to see guppy fry. It inspired me to add male guppies to my male endler tank. Eeek! Aren't they so cute?!
