    As the title states, I'm thinking of added one to my 125 reef. Reef currently houses a clown and a mimic tang, along with the basic cleanup crew. I'd like the wrasse for two reasons, first, I think they're quite neat fish and it'll add great variety. Second, there is a small chance he'll help me clean up flatworms. (I fully understand he might not want to)

    I do have the top of the tank screened to prevent jumping. Is there any reason why I shouldn't get one?

    Not that I can think of! I'm going to get my first pair of wrasses very soon here.
    Good luck with yours!

    Thanks! I've got two local fish stores that stock them. Option 1 - $20 - I'd rate the store a 7/10. Option 2 - $35 - I'd rate the store a 10/10. Option 2 I feel is quite a bit for a little fishy, but the store owner won't even put a label/price on the fish until he's had them for a while and they're eating very, very well.

    It's up to you. I'm willing to drive farther/pay more for livestock from a store I really, really trust.

    Great fish! I love my wrasse. I would look at the 4 line wrasse, IMO they're cooler looking plus not many people have them.

    You could have one too, if youd just get rid of those killer triggers. :shock:
