    Cool conan

    They should be fine but there might be some settling in between the Gramma and Wrasse as they like similar territorial areas but after awhile they should be okay.

    THe gramma is known to be very shy but it'll eventually come around somewhat. Very good choice to have with the clowns and considered peaceful. They like to have places to hide as well so hopefully the rockwork supports this.
    It'll be a good addition to your tank.

    cool thanks. He does have ample places to hide. Will he come out and eat? What do you guys recommend me feeding him? same as the clowns and wrasse?

    The gramma is a carnivore and likes to eat variety of foods, especially meaty treats (fish & crustaceans). Some have had success with the mysis.

    Good luck and I'm sure it'll come out after a while.

    My royal gramma loves flake foods, brine shrimp, tiger shrimp, and zooplex.

    I keep him in a 65 gallon tank with a clownfish and a purple firefish.

    He rarely hides with those peaceful fish around him. All three fish hang around and share the same area in the tank. Go figure.
