Yes ... I said "WRasse"!!! :lol:

Going to try my luck with a pygmy wrasse next week from Live Aquaria ... got a few questions for those with more experience with them than myself.
Have a bare bottom quarantine tank but will be putting a container of sand in it (not even sure if the pygmy buries at night or not?
SO:
*Would I do better to pull sand from established display tank or you fresh/clean sand?
*Seems the last couple of shipments from L.A. came in at 1.018 salinity ... would it be worth having the q-tank matched at that or acclimate it up to the 1.025?
*Will be going through a PraziPro regiment ... so IF making the q-tank 1.018 ... would it be worth going through the hypo salinity process as well?
Thanks in advance for your input! :cheer:

I purchased a leopard wrasse and used new sand. If you are going to dose prazi, etc, that may kill off the micro fauna causing an ammonia spike using seasoned sand ? I used a fine sand for wrasses. He/she easily took to it at night.
I would do what you have been doing in the past , Hypo salinity to not stress out the fish for now, match to what they have during the QT period.
That's my 2 cents.
good luck!
I am assuming the shipment is tomorrow?
Love that L.A.!
It's just money...go ahead, spend it.

Actually arranged for delivery for next Wednesday... they can't do that with the Diver's Den stock... but can with the 'regular' Live Aquaria.

Dennis, What kind of pygmy is it? Is it a possum wrasse? If so, they do not borrow. No sand required. Put a piece of pvc i n the tank so it can hide

Hey Tom .... it's a Tanaka's wrasse (see link below) which would be considered a possum ... right?.
L.A. says is a rock dweller but wasn't sure if that meant just during it's waking hours or all the time.
Thanks!

Tight lid. Tight lid. Tight lid. And don't forget the tight lid.
A small piece or two of PVC (an elbow with a little piece big enough to hide in) and a little container of fine sand "just in case" it feels the need. And don't forget the tight lid. :blink:
Beauty of a fish. If I didn't have a six-line already. Well, okay, I've probably got enough space I could handle one anyway, but the six-line probably doesn't need the aerobics training all that much.
Have fun!
Cheers,
