Putting a damsel in a small tank with clowns is asking for trouble.

How about a Skunk cleaner shrimp? Active, bright, and fun all at the same time.

Ended up buying a six line wrasse on wed. Was active among rocks on wed and Thursday. Haven't seen it since.

Thats how a lot of small reef fish are. Naturally they are using the reef as cover from predators and often when the find a suitable crack they'll hang out in there for 75% of the day. Have you considered getting some inverts to keep you interested when the fish aren't out? Maybe a fighting conch, Some blue leg hermits, some cleaner shrimp? Something along those lines would be a fun and cool addition to your tank so that something will always be out to watch.

Wrasses once they become comfortable are always cruising the rock scape, very active fish. My possum wrasse hid for a couple weeks, now it's constantly cursing tank.

I read mature 6 lines have become very aggressive for many hobbyists. That's not something I want for my tank.

Is your tank covered? Six lines are very prone to jumping. I thought my tank was covered well and I have lost 2 because they jumped through a small space. If you cant find your wrasse make sure you check the floor around the tank. Hopefully it did not jump.
