Fairy/Flasher Wrasse Opinion

So I'm looking to add one final fish, a wrasse, to one of my tanks, a 40 gallon. I'm thinking of a hooded, whipfin or maybe a juvenile Eight line flasher wrasse. What do you guys think?

All would be a great choice. I am partial to the McCoskers flasher wrasse myself.

Whip fins are nice, and cheap.

I recently purchased a whip fin and my clowns harassed it to death. They were my first fish in my 72g and they have never attacked any other additions.

Are you saying it was the whip fins fault? LOL.

Whip fin is the wrasse I want. Well I really want a dusky wrasse but I can't find them anywhere ever and I'm but adding fish now anyway. McCosters Flasher would be my second choice.

Mr X definitely not. Lol. I felt so bad for the little guy. I often read stories about how aggressive clowns can be, but I assumed mine weren't because they had never attacked any other fish. The whip wrasse was also a different shape and color, so I am even more baffled.
