On the upside, I have managed to add a young male Royal Flasher Wrasse from Divers Den to the tank, the down side, is that this may be the last Wrasse I can add to the tank for some time. Its not for a lack of money to add anymore fish at this time, work just doesn't let me off to be home to take deliveries on fish I have on my, want to buy list. The Post Office feels that it is cheaper for them to work me on all my days offs instead adding new employee's to our work force. I am supposed to get Sunday and another day off during the week, I can count on one hand the times I have had the other day off in the last 2 1/2 years.
For those of you who have a LFS that will order and get in some of these nicer fish for your tank,,,, count yourself's lucky and don't take them for granted, let them know how much you appreciate their efforts, you will have take my word on this, it could be worse read that part again. Being able to have my LFS get in some of the nicer fish on my list, would make things a lot easier on me and most likely prolong my life expectancy, due to lack of stress.
I do have a fish question though I read pretty much anything about Wrasses that I can get my hands on, I look at the stock list for people's tanks that I consider to be Pros when its comes to keeping these fish. What I am looking for here is, what fish will get along with their tank mates and not cause a problem, when it comes to having to remove a fish from the tank. I know its not a sure thing when it comes to, not getting a problem fish, but it does give someone that doesn't know a lot, a starting point in picking my, want to buy list.
So, my question ,,, Labout's Fairy Wrasse ,, what's up with this fish? I have never actually seen this fish with my own eyes, which is the case with most all Wrasse's from the pictures I have seen of this fish, I think it is a pretty cool looking fish, yet non of the people that I consider to be Pro's (in the National Forums) when it comes to keeping these fish in their tanks, seem to have this Wrasse in their tanks. This kinda leads me to believe they don't have this fish in their tanks for a reason ,, its not a cheap fish either, so what is up with this fish? As it stands right now, this fish is at the bottom of my want to buy list with a question mark next to it.
