    I'm down to 3 Chromis, 3 Firefish, and 2 PJ Cards and my old man Clownfish who's now missing his mate of ten years or more. I may add a six line wrasse at some point, but I'm not in any hurry..

    What's wrong with the six line? I'm thinking of getting one.

    Sorry guys, just saw this now. They are just not nice fish. Once established, they can and will terrorize any new additions, as well as turn on existing fish for no apparent reason. This is similar with the entire Pseudocheilinus genus, which is why I say to stay away.

    See Hunter's thread for more info: http://www.3reef.com/forums/tropical-fish/all-about-reef-safe-wrasses-122261.html

    Go with any of the other reef safe genus' listed. I am a huge fan of Cirrhilabrus & Paracheilinus personally.

    Little behind but on the pod thing I got a bunch of small rubble and stacked it over the top of a filter sponge in a back corner of my old tank the rubble created cover for the sponge and was heavy and dense enough that the fish didnt totally destroy the whole population fo pods at once.

    I got a bag of pods yesterday. He said they are in all three stages of growth. I put half the bag in my sump and the other half in my DT. Do I buy more or let these take off?

    Just pick one up once a month for a little while. Then just give them time to populate.
