Wrasse suggestions

Want a wrasse that is aggressive but I don't want them to eat my clean up crew.

Six line. I've just got snails and crabs and he doesn't really bother them but I don't know about shrimp if you have any. My wrasse loves shrimp.

Both of my six lines (2 different tanks) done mess with the shrimp, but both wrasses are smaller. Most fish know that cleaner shrimp are purposeful and don't eat them. I have some pretty large aggressive fish in my 180g (large porkie puffer and large Niger trigger) and neither pay much mind and enjoy the cleanings.

A six line can hold its own for being a smaller wrasse. If your looking for bigger perhaps a bird wrasse?

We just picked up a lunar wrasse for the 180g and so far, so good. Finding his spot to hide. Very active and love the colors.

I have a school of canary wrasse (6) and a cleaner wrasse. They have been okay for the corals.
