      Wrasser fish review

      Trying to buy a wrasser fish for my 25g lagoon tank,
      Which kind of wrasser is reef safe or not aggressive?
      I only have a black ocerallis and a mandarin fish that they get alone.
      Any input reefers?

      What about a McCosker’s? Awesome color and a pretty calm wrasse in my experience. They don’t do much for pest control though.

      Lots of wrasses can be good choices. Several are difficult and have high mortality rates, like the Leopard Wrasse. I don't know of any that are generally aggressive other than sixlines.
      25g is on the small side, but if it's a lagoon then I assume it's a fair amount of swimming room? It could be okay if you keep an eye on size and stress.
      A small Lubbock's Wrasse wouldn't be a bad choice and commonly available, or a Yellow Coris Wrasse.
      They are jumpers so be sure to have a lid or net on your tank.

      Thanks for the input, better look for a net then.

      I have 1/4" black net that makes a good cover, all you need is a $12 window screen kit from home depot. If you happen to be in my area I'll give you as much as you need.
