    If you are concerned put a small container of sand somewhere and they will find it i have found that most sand dwellers prefer it especially when tgey are frightened and sleep much more peacefully unthreatened

    I had a melanarus in a bare bottom tank in a 40 gallon Frag system. I put in a bowl of sand but he didn't use it so I eventually took it out and he actually adapted just fine to sleeping in the rocks with no sign of stress. I have one in my main tank now and have been slowly removing the sand because it was making a mess stirring the sand up and buried and killed a few corals. I also figured he was stirring up a cloud of toxins as the sand bed holds a lot of detritus.I also tend to like bare bottom tanks because sand has killed many a coral for me. I tend to pile a bunch of corals on the bottom. Holly gave me a hard time but as fish acclimate in the tank they tend to not get as stressed. This one eats out of my hands sometimes. Now he sleeps in the rocks as there is less sand for him. He's not showing any sign of distress. I would put a bowl of sand in. Make sure you have a cover as most wrasses are jumpers of it a shallow tank and with time I bet he adjusts without sand. One thing we forget is fish are adaptable. I mean look how well many do when we take them from a massive ocean and put them in a square box. Younger fish tend to do better and even better I like tank raised and bred specimens as they have grown up in a tank around humans so they tend to do better. Just think about the baby clownfish you see. They are so used to human interaction they are quite tame.

    Love the wrasses! There are plenty of wrasses that don't need sand (e.g. flashers, fairies, mystery, possum) that are great and interesting fish but many of the best pest control species do like a sand bed (e.g. melanarus, coris, leopard) so it might be tricky to cover all your bases in a bare bottom. There are other folk on here with a lot more experience and detailed wrasse knowledge that will hopefully chime in as there may be some good crossover species that would work for you. For reef safe, I have hardly ever heard of any of the common varieties going after coral but some of the "hunters" (coris, melanarus) will also target inverts so you need to be careful depending on what you want to keep in the tank. I have a green coris and melanarus who are fine with snails, hermits, large shrimp but there is always some risk. As far as a six line, that is the one wrasse I would never have in my tank again. Sneaky aggressive and most likely fish in my experience to cause others to launch themselves out of the tank. Attractive and hardy but not worth the risk in my mind. Others may well have had better luck but I am two for two with bad attitude so no more.

    Looking good and nice write up! No matter how much time you spend planning out your plumbing it is almost a guarantee that you will still need multiple trips to the hardware store and you will redo at least one section of it - it is the unwritten law. I like the creative light hanging solution. We, likewise, are really able to hang from above so I have been thinking about ways to improve the leg arrangement on ours. Good stuff.

    Any leopards are amazing if you have a sand bed, 4 lines are beautiful but can get mean with other wrasse, same with 6, rhomboiuds are awesome male flame wrasse are nice, depends on the amount you wanna spend, leopards have zero aggression, basically the whole family which includes potters etc... Mystery wrasse are a good one, but can be a little mean against other wrasse of the same general shape. I always liked the Soloriensis Fairy Wrasse is a fav of mine and usually very docile. Most wrasses will not bother other fish really. It's getting them to play nice with other wrasses than can be the issue. the last 75 I ran was heavy into wrasses. 3 blue star, 4 line, mystery, soloriensis, small 6 line, and probably another 1 or 2 I cant think of at the moment. They leopards never bothered anyone, but the mystery and 4 line could be mean towards the soloriensis, but it was big enough to where they didnt bug him too much. Avoid bigger wrasses as they become less reef safe. I rememebr one day after adding my 6" radiant wrasse that my cleaner shrimp had become very reclusive. A few days later I see him swimming around with cleaner shrimp antenna sticking about a inch out of his mouth lol. To the sump he went.
