    I love me some wrasse's, so I want to see everyone's wrasse pictures! Please share!

    I've been practicing my fish taking.. Snapped a decent one of my Naoko Wrasse, still need to polish up on my skills though!

    The Red Solon wrasse is one of the more passive wrasse's.. Which flasher do you have?

    Interesting situation you have there, every fish is different... I would try taking the blue line out for a few days and then re-introducing it back into the tank to "reset" its territory..
