    Hi everyone I need some advice please?? I have a red coris wrasse in my reef tank and a friend has offered me a purple lobster. Im really keen to take him on but worries that the wrasse will eat him for dinner. Thanks for your help :)

    Hi and Welcome NZ,

    How large is the lobster versus the wrasse?

    Remember lobsters are mostly nocturnal and really not that interesting in the home environment once you get over the initial curiosity. You rarely see them out and about as they are reclusive.

    Thank you :)

    The lobster is about 7cm in length and the wrasse is about 12cm.

    I'm fine with rarely seeing him just so long as he is not going to be eaten by the wrasse.

    Probably fine for now, a gamble later on down the line.
