this is a beautiful fish. Is there any reason i should not have one of these in a reef tank?
I have both a leopard wrasse and a fairy wrasse. The both do very well in my tank and are awesome to watch. With a 75 gallon tank, I would probably recommend only one. Nice choice!
No reason at all.
Just keep in mind that wrasses are jumpers and he may decide he likes the carpet better than the tank.
They're an awesome fish that I'd someday like to own once I upgrade to a larger tank. What's the min size tank they can be successfully kept in?
will an eggcrate cover work? it is cut to fit perfectly. the only openings are just in the egg crate itself
LA recommends a minimum of 50 gallons for the leopard wrasse
This is my #1 most favorite fish ever. The only reason to be concerned is that they can be hard to get eating. If you buy one, make sure it eats frozen food (as you would if you bought a mandarin). I had one for years, and will have another one again.
i have a 75 gal with a 55 gal sump. there should be plenty of room for one i would think.
thank you everyone for your imput. helps me make up my mind. i think that is going to be my next buy but wanted to see what others had experienced
Don't forget to post the photos!
