Hoevens wrasse?

Anyone ever have his type of wrasse and could give me any valuable knowledge about them? Why are they "with caution" reef safe on liveaquaria?

Mine will eat inverts, but otherwise he is a model tankmate.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Thanks Carey. So my cleaner shrimp and peppermint shrimp are at risk? Or are they big enough to survive? The wrasse I plan on getting isn't very big. Maybe 2.5 inches

ehh I would be very cautious with shrimp and wrasses.....any reason you are wanting the hoevens? I got mine to prevent flatworms which I had an issue with in my old tank.

I heard they are good with keeping the tank clean of worms. Haven't spotted too many but I don't know if I have any. Also I absolutely LOVE the design of it lol. I don't know what it is but this is probably one off fav wrasses
