    Most likely, they will not coexist longterm. H. melanurus can be quite aggressive toward conspecifics.

    I agree, and do not advise that plan.

    These fish will be the cause of my "multi tank" syndrome.

    I have a 55 gallon reef tank with a clown pair and a royal gramma that have been together for years. What wrasse would have the best chance of getting along (if any)?

    Most flashers, the smaller fairies, a yellow cris wrasse or a melanurus wrasse are some options.

    Thanks guys! I was afraid of that:( Have to break down a tank for months due to brain surgery soon. Will be giving them away to good homes then. :D Makes me sad to not be able to keep it(them)but cannot risk death to any of my wet pets;)

    Just read this whole thread. Many thanks to you for putting it together. The time, experience and thought processes that went into making that chart are impressive. I am now more educated and better off because of your work. No more mindlessly purchasing species because "I want them". This provides a strategic guide for the novice as well as established reef junkies such as myself. Kudos to you sir!
