Even my wrasses mean no shrimp, clams or dusters.

Yes but a Coris gamaird gets big enough to eat your wrasses too But they are a gorgeous fish as adults.

( I just noticed that the thread seemed to go from Yellowtail Coris wrasses to yellow Coris wrasses so I wanted to make sure we were all talking about the same fish. )

Hi- to confuse matters, when I researched it, it's a red coris as a juvenile but as an adult, it's also known as a yellowtail coris wrasse.

That's what I thought. So it's a juv. Coris gamaird that you have and not a yellow coris. If so, you definitely were sold a bill of goods. This is not a reef safe fish. As they mature, they will play havoc with your decor and some of your smaller reef safe fish. ( But I think you will agree, they are GORGEOUS as adults )
I'd bring him back to the LFS and find a better LFS to go to. Tell the owner why you will not be stopping in anymore as well. Owners need to know when their staff is the problem with customers.
