He (I’m speculating sex in accordance with the level of dorsal locations) has never seemed to be extremely aggressive after all, inserting close to my personal banded goby on most hours

Wrasse type/safety and carpet anemone move Hello again Anthony Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, I’ve had a minor op on my foot and only just come back to work. In my last e-mail I was asking about a Lawnmower Blenny and the fish it would have to live with in my two tanks, the gist of the e-mail and my return response is this: [regarding algae control] << I know about the skimming but I have a problem in getting a hang on type to fit my tank which has glass ledges 6" wide each end as well as front and back ledges of 2" plus no room for a sump! Else, you can use a sump model and pump from the display to an upstream vessel like a refugium with a skimmer and them let the water overflow back down to the display> I have an adapted sea clone that came with the tank (2nd hand) and the glass was broken at the top to accommodate the SC.

I plan to get a new tank eventually but not yet. The other tank is newish but not reef ready and I bought a prism skimmer for 140 pounds sterling before I found your site! I do have concern that the Green Bird (? After >that, I have seen them fed 4″ crayfish which they smash to pieces >off the rocks. Do consider removing in time. Kindly, Anthony> << I think my Wrasse is a male Thalassoma lunare , mainly green with slight flecks of blue on the body and blue/red markings on his face, he also has a yellow tail. He is very active, nosey and a fast swimmer but I haven't seen him be aggressive towards anything else in the tank.

In short supply of substitution this new wrasse which have a smaller sized version or good various other seafood completely, exactly what do your suggest I do to help you tame it apparent growing threat?

Are the guy fully grown at the eight” and can he are still a guy in my tank? Lunare wrasses try gorgeously hardy and beautiful fishes although are notoriously competitive. I have seen specimens over 30cm long> I’m extremely keen on him due to his character! I telephone call Nasos „Naso” or „lipstick” tang> exploit appears identical to an effective Acanthurus Lineatus (Pajama doctor) oh precious! An easy task to feed however, difficult to keep real time for the a captive eating plan for almost all. As well as requires large long tanks that have very strong drinking water movement and you will they are a little aggressive> Once i get attention could i inquire about my personal Carpeting anemone’s re also homes? I experienced to make use of specific stress to make him to let wade but I do not imagine I damaged him in any way apart from worry.

What should I do if anything? If it continues for weeks, consider that more light or water flow may be needed> How can you move a carpet without hurting/stressing him ? Also I bought 1 marine white and 1 actinic fluorescent lights for him but am wondering if this is enough light even though it is a small tank. Jenny

Canary Wrasse Woes Bob (Steve), Nice to talk to you again. I have had some fairly good success with my reef tank (thanks in part to your assistance). I now find myself in a rather interesting problem. All reports I have read, people I have talked to, and internet sites visited (including yours), list the Canary Wrasse as fish and reef safe. Until recently, I have never had any problems with mine. This morning I noticed him nipping at my star polyps and chasing my banded goby. Have you heard of or noticed this type of behavior before in a canary wrasse? Is it possible that this is as a result of finally feeling comfortable in the tank (he has now been in the tank for about a month), and being close to full size, trying to establish dominance in the tank? Sincerely, Mark
