I want to add a wrasse and clean-up crew

ANy ideas on a wrasse that will work for my system?

75 gallons
60lbs LR
Flame Angel
Longhorn Boxfish
2 Black and white clowns
Dwarf Hawkfish

Other suggestions for filling out my tank?

What about a small cleanup crew?

I like my sixline wrasse. Your clean-up crew can consist of you. There is a good chance your hawkfish will eat any snails, crabs or shrimp.

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

My sixline wrasse is a colorful character and has delighted me with its antics. It does barrelrolls in the eddy places of current, harassed the mantis shrimp to the point where the shrimp dived into the shrimptrap, swims with my blenny, and sucks worms out of rock like no tomorrow. It's very funny to watch it wrestling a many times longer fire worm out of it's place in the rocks. It was, though, VERY aggressive towards the royal gramma, to the point of me regretting getting the gramma. Maybe mine is just a firecracker, what I read say's they're peaceful. Mine however, is not. At least, not with other carnivorous fish. It was fine with the lawnmower and the kole tang.
Only thing more dangerous than a 2nd lieutenant saying "In my experience" is a warrant officer saying "Hey guys, check this out!"
