Well, one place I forgot to check has one. :-p My only issue is they don't have any guarantee on the fish. If I buy it and it dies even if it's not my fault, I am out of 24 dollars. :-/

Should I go with the Flame Hawkfish first, or Wrasse first? I only got three hours to decide. So please help me out. :-p

Hey Khij

Being that the Flame Hawk is harder to find in stores and this store I found has one, would it be ok to go with the Flame hawk? than the Six Line Wrasse last? Some people say a Wrasse should be last anyway.

I like the Six Line, and I know I can find one next week, they are harder to find this time of year but I got 9 stores I can call and one has to have a Wrasse next week. The flame hawk on the other hand is just hard to find, and to be honest I have only seen in pictures and video. :-p

Yes. As long as the flame hawk is still a juvenile. Otherwise it'll be too territorial when you try to add the 6line

Thanks Khij

Yes he is a baby still. I talked to the guy and he said that adding him first over the Wrasse would be ok as the Wrasse can swim circles around a hawkfish.

One question, what if I add both today? Would that be a option? I don't want to shock my bio-load but I got a ton of live things in there right now. I got 2 clowns, 6 hermits, and 2 peppermint shrimp (I know the hawk might get my shrimp). My tank has been up now for four weeks and water quality was perfect last night I checked.

I do have 50 pounds of live rock and 60 pounds of live sand. That should help with the bio-load.
