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 replacing the wrasse having a smaller adaptation otherwise a good additional fish entirely, precisely what do you recommend I really do so you're able to acquire it visible increasing possibility?

Is actually he mature within 7" and can the guy are nevertheless an excellent chap in my tank? Lunare wrasses is actually gorgeously hardy and beautiful fishes nevertheless the is infamously aggressive. I have seen specimens more than 30cm enough time> I am very fond of him due to their profile! We name Nasos "Naso" otherwise "lipstick" tang> exploit appears same as an effective Acanthurus Lineatus (Pajama physician) oh beloved!

Very easy to supply but tough to continue live with the a captive diet plan for almost all. And additionally demands higher enough time tanks with quite strong liquids direction and you can they can be somewhat competitive> When i get focus am i able to enquire about my Carpet anemone's re also casing? I'd to make use of specific pressure to force your to allow wade but I really don't thought We damaged your at all with the exception of 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
