Wrasse Compatibility


Quick question about compatibility within the wrasse family. I currently have a sixline in my 46g mixed reef and would like to add a solar fairy wrasse to the tank. I figured since these are different enough in appearance it would be fine, but I wanted to check on here before making any moves. Does anyone have any experience with keeping two wrasses in the same tank without problems? Thanks!

We have the following in our 220 gal. system: 5" red velvet wrasse, 4" yellow coris wrasse, 2 1/2" seagrass wrasse and a 2" yellowfin fairy wrasse. They all get along fine. I think the key factors (other than avoiding aggressive species of wrasses) is frequent small feelings and ample rock work. The two you propose should do fine.
