    Your odds are 50/50 with the six-line. I had one and it ate 3 cleaners on me and two were very large.

    I had one till he died, don't know of what he died from tho. I don't have any wrasses 2 tangs a lil yellow tail damsel and scooter goby, did a pretty hefty water change and found him dead next day.... That would be my guess as of what could have happened to him... But my lion ate him so all in all I kept the circle of life going :)
