Anampses femininus and Bodianus sp., comp.  9/22/09
Long time avid reader, first time sending in a question that I wasn't able to find the answer to elsewhere on your site.
I currently have a fantastic Anampses Femininus in my 75gal mixed reef aquarium. She is very healthy, active and peaceful, and gets along with her tank mates; a true percula and cherub angel. I've wanted to add a fourth and final fish to the tank and was wondering if it would be possible to add either a Bodianus Sepiacaudus or B. bimaculatus to the system.
<Should be fine here>
I've read that both species might quarrel with similarly shaped fishes, such as wrasses and Dottybacks, and would rather avoid conflict in my otherwise peaceful tank if there is a real threat.
If you think it unwise to add one of the aforementioned hogs, do you believe I could get away with adding a second Tamarin wrasse to the system?
<Mmm, yes>
My lone A. femininus is a female if that has any bearing on the answer (I've read only sketchy information about sexual behavioural differences within the genus).
<You are aware that the initial/female Tamarin will turn into a terminal/male individual?>
Thanks greatly for any input you can offer!
