Shrimp Disappearing

I have had cleaner shrimp in my tank since the start. But now they are disappearing???

The only thing new is a wrasse in the tank. Is that fish eating my shrimp?

Other residents:
Yellow tang
Bi color blenny
dragon
elk horn crab
hermits
snails
feather duster
torch coral
cup coral

I had mexican turbos kill two of my shrimp. Also shrimp can succesfully hide for weeks at a time.

Do you have a pic or species name? Many crabs will prey on just about everything from coral to fish.

Very possibly. Many Wrasses will eat small ornamental shrimp as will Pseudochromis.
