    Default fairy wrass vs ebili angel

    I am trying to think who I should get rid of in my tank before one or the other dies due to aggression to each other

    I know the wrasse would be easy to catch since he hangs out front and center all the time but really like his coloring and almost seems to be budding up with the 6line drawing it out into the open more

    please help

    First Im kinda surprised that you didn't QT the fish at all or acclimate to the tank and other fish with an acclimation box.

    They are really affordable, or you could make one very easily.

    Not trying to sound like the "Tang Police" but the situation could have been avoided and a fish.

    I mean, who would have thought the Angel and Wrasse would duke it out, but if you had it in an acclimation box you would have been able to observe the aggression and respond accordingly.

    Another major problem is going to catch one of these fish in your tank if one needs to me removed.

    Good Luck Taz.

    Oh, wrasse by the way. Bigger faster and the Angel is a bigger target.

    as for aclimation it was aclimated for water params in the bucket

    for qt i know i am bad and dont have a qt tank and wish i did but have a pita for a wife and wont let me have a second tank at all or for any reason

    the angel is actualy about the same size in length i think the aggression which is mostly from the angel is teritorial the wrasse will be easier to catch due to it staying to the corners and top

    well either the wrasse found a good hiding spot last night while I was at work or jumped through the over flow or out the back and I cant find it

    either way tank has calmed down but only cause the wrasse is nowhere to be found atm

    I am hoping he just found a good hiding spot during lights out and will show up again in a day or two

    Angels > Wrasses

    So, what happened in the first place? Were they both new additions at the same time?

    no I have had the ebili for about 8 months to a year now beautifull fish and just got the wrasse from a fellow reefer that was redoing their tank and it didn't fit in their plan

    well long story short the ebili didn't like the wrasse in the tank and started taking cheap shots at it not sure if it got chased out of the tank via the back or if it went down the over flow and is stuck somewhere in the sump

    found the wrasse today and put him back in the tank but should have dropped him in a net to find a new home

    he was in the over flow and caused the tank to start to over flow today but by some miracle he is still alive
