View Full Version : Wrasse Compatibility

07/18/2008, 11:53 PM
I have a Slippery Dick Wrasse (yes, that really is its name), and I was wondering if anybody knew if this wrasse or others in the family eat/bother soft coral. I'm going to get a 40/45 breeder tank with coral and the fish would be going in the tank, but my only precaution would be that he eats the coral.

Also would he be compatible with any other fish, if so what?

I've never had a slippery dick....wrasse. But I am sure it is like the rest of the smaller wrasses. Some are nice, some are not. It looks like a blue head or jansen wrasse. Jansen wrasses can get mean. If the body style leads to a common disposition in the behavior, then I would stay away from fairy wrasses, and look for an eight line or mystery.

I don't think this wrasse would bother corals, but it would eat crustaceans like hermit crabs and shrimp.
