Red Sea Max 130 Build Log

This is a discussion on Red Sea Max 130 Build Log within the Beginner Saltwater Aquariums forums, part of the Saltwater Fish and Coral Reef Tanks category; --> I would recommend the Gramma too. I have heard that they are prone to disease though, so make sure you get a healthy specimen....

What if anything else would you suggest I look into adding after the gamma?

I personally love these fish: White Banded Possum Wrasse and am considering one for my nano.

OK well I'm going to go with the gamma for sure. That wrasse is cool but I have not seen any of them locally. It appears that all the wrasses the LFS has are Fairy and Flasher which are more peaceful than the 6 lines but a little too active as Evan pointed out. I liked the Red Fairy but im not sure exactly what kind it was as there appears to be a few different kinds.

Hopefully the weekend of the 8th and 9th ill be heading to that large LFS 1.5 hrs away for some fish and coral as everything will be 25% off. Im not sure If I will get the Gamma sooner or just wait. Ill keep looking into other fish but I may decide to go with a pajama cardinal or a purple firefish

I know that with my LFS I can put in requests. Maybe yours is the same?

I think I want a Blue Flasher Wrasse. They look super cool and seem like they would be great in my tank. Looks like they would have them in stock at the Not so local fish store I plan to go to on the 8th/

Thoughts on this guy?

Nice looking fish.

I have always had luck with Wrasses. The only one that slightly gave me a problem was the SixLine, and just because they get a little "assertive" in smaller tanks. I had a Flame Fairy Wrasse that was a pleasure to have in the tank until the SixLine chased him out!

Paracheilinus Filamentosus

Or that guy above.

Yea I think they are so cool. My six line was so nice, but I never added a fish after him and people say they can get aggressive after a few years. The one thing I agreed with the LFS guy is when he said "you had a six line and he was nice, but who is to say the next one you get will be just as nice, you need to get lucky sometimes. Id go with a more peaceful fish".

Considering my luck with this tank so far, I think im going to agree.

I think either is a good specimen. If they have both, just go with the one that looks healthier and is readily taking prepared foods.
