Few wrasse-species are also suitable for the beginners and initial stocking, so for example the class Halichoeres or even the known six striped –wrasse Pseudocheilinus hexataenia which can be found in lots of marine tanks. Due to the small final size lots of wrasses are suitable for small tanks < 500l in case of which they should be structured properly. Wrasses are lively swimmers while the six striped-wrasse is very aggressive. Rare but incredibly beautiful to look at are e.g. Macropharyngodon (Diamond-wrasse) and Macropharyngodon meleagris (Leopardenjunker) or even the not so easily kept Cirrhilabrus species and Choerodon fasciatus.
Beautiful and agile!
"Often good to keep them solo!" Many wrasses are completely aggressive towards their conspecifics (Please inform beforehand about individual- or group housing of animals) where they are otherwise very easy to maintain.
