Christmas wrasse issues

I recently set up my new 55g which will eventually be my new reef once I get my new lights. I added a 5" Christmas wrasse to it (second fish) that came from one of my friends tank that he had to tear down cause he got orders to Japan. Any who, I observed the wrasse in his 46 bow front for a couple days and it never picked on anything and when I put it in my tank it didn't pick on anything until I got my snails from reefcleaners. She tears the snails out of their shells but doesn't eat them. Question is will this past indefinitely or is this a temporary? Any help from people who have had them would be great

I also had a snail and hermit buffet for my wrasses. LOL When I first put them in the inverts got feasted on but now the fish seem to be leaving the remaining ones alone. So, I guess the answer is maybe.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

This is the best shot I could get of her. Sorry about the bubble on the display. Just got a new cone skimmer in my sump and breaking it in. I'll give it a few more weeks see what happens. I'll even add a few replacements but this time in the cover of night when she's buried herself.
