    green fish?

    Can anyone make suggestions for a green coloured fish other than the green chromis? I like them on the smallish and peaceful side for a 55G. Current inhabitants are 2 Ocellaris clowns, 1 royal gramma, 1 yellow wrasse, 1 cleaner shrimp, snails and crabs, some mushrooms, and 1 finger leather.
    thanks.

    Mandarins - small and peaceful, but require higher care levels, read up on that one.

    Green Clown Gobies - not all green, but close enough!!

    What type of crabs do you have, nothing that puts smaller fish on the menu I hope :-)
    Keep passing the open windows!

    Is there a risk that a yellow and green wrasse would fight in a 55G?

    my yellow wrasse made quick work of the little pods that I had and no refugium so mandarin out of question.

    my crabs are just the blue leg hermits.

    green wrasse: looks quite nice. Though upon googling, says gets up to 8 inches, needs at least 70G, expert only, may not be reef safe, etc...Liveaquaria.com does say that does well with other peaceful wrasse so I think that's ok with the yellow wrasse.

    Does anyone here have a green wrasse and can share their experience?
    thanks.

    We're talking about the:

    Yellow wrasse (Halichoerus Chrysus)
    Green wrasse (Halichoerus Chloropterus)
