Question for Cocoa Pleco
Noticed you have a lunar wrasse and shrimp, snails, hermit crabs. How do you keep these together? We had a lunar wrasse, very pretty, but it ate all the inverterbrates. Sad day, had to get rid of it. Any suggestions.

For some reason cocoa's wrasse enjoys the company of inverts more than the taste.

first, i added about 20 snails and 50 crabs, all was good. i was surprised that he didnt eat any. 3 months later, i found the odd empty snail shell, and odd empty hermit shell. then, i added a feather duster, and i caught the wrasse picking at it. now, i have few to no snails, and a few hermit crabs that keep a low profile. i actually still have the feather duster, i hid the feather dusters body under a piece of LR gently, and have the feathers sticking out. the duster isnt getting picked at and has recovered.
hes good about leaving corals alone, but inverts isnt going so well. i havent set up my 90g reef yet, but i know i want inverts in it, so once the wrasse outgrows my 55g i know someone with a invertless reef, the guy lives about 5 minutes from me and has a 250g coral tank with inverts, and 150g with no inverts, so im sure he would be able to take him.
the only invert he ignores is my coral banded shrimp
