I want to add either a 6 Line or a Carpenters Flasher Wrasse to my tank. The 6 line is more common and said to be more aggressive. The Carpenters is supposedly peaceful. Please comment if you have either of these guys. Thanks. R

I have other flashers, not the carpenter and I've had a 6 line in the past. The 6 line is the devil. If you want ANY other vague conspecifics, forget the 6 line. Flasher's are pretty and interesting and PEACEFUL except potentially mixing males can cause problems

I think the flasher would be cool. As they grow comfortable in your tank, they could start eating out of your fingers. So I would say they are peaceful, interesting, and not super shy.

I agree. Go with the flasher. The 6 line that I had in my tank terrorised everything!

Great. Now I just have to fine the Carpenter. The LFS has a million 6 Lines to one Carpenter. Thanks

Flashers are some really interesting critters.

Get one of the internet. If you're looking for other stuff to go to liveaquaria.com and get like $175 worth of stuff and they'll overnight it to you for free.

No, I just got a shipment from liveaquaria.com and one of the sally lightfoot crabs was DOA so I called them and within 2 minutes I got credit for it. They have a 14 day guarantee too.
