you bet your wrasses

Anyone see a problem with this, given a large tank volume:

adding the following wrasses to the same tank -

Scott's fairy wrasse
Jansen's wrasse
Lime green Lutescens wrasse
Lunare wrasse
Hardwicki wrasse
Bluehead wrasse
green Bird wrasse

any issues with these wrasses? it would of course be a fish only system, ...

Check them out at www.liveaquaria.com

I find they have good animal description including rather or not the wrasse gets along with other wrasses or not.

I was investigating the same issue to see if a Lubucks Fairy wrasse would get along with my yellow wrasse.

Hmm, I would remove the fairy wrasse. Wrasses like the Bird Wrasse, and especially the Lunare (from what I've seen) are quite boisterous.

Bluehead wrasse are very nice. I see them all the time diving in the Caribbean, and they are very social. Whenever I stir the substrate, a bunch come and see If I've uncovered anything. If you want a "natural" stocking selection, remove the Bluehead. Most of your other Wrasses are from the Pacific, while the Bluehead is from the Atlantic.

Good Luck!

The lunare will get large and could definately bully the more peaceful wrasses
