That's such a shame for the McCosker's wrasse to just vanish like that such a beautiful looking fish and I love the colours in them, I would definitely consider having one of them in my tank and I could probably only keep up to half a dozen fish only. Are wrasse fish aggressive or do they get on well with other fish?

That depends on the type of wrasse. Some are listed as semi-aggressive and some are peaceful. And even after that, each fish is individual and may not conform to the usual behavior. I had a carpenters wrasse- gorgeous fish- but it jumped last week.

Sorry that your wrasse jumped Beengirl.

Elaborating on what Beengirl said, some wrasses, like the Melanurus wrasse or Christmas wrasse are classified as reef safe(bluezoo). LA says "with caution" in a reef b/c they can eat pyramidellid snails, types of worms, and feather dusters. I did further research b/c I really wanted one and found out that a youtuber had one in his reef and it ate all his cerith snails and was picking on other fish even though it's "peaceful". Another example is that dwarf angels and foxface fish might have an appetite for corals, but it depends on the individual fish. I've heard many cases of the dwarf angels eating corals, but not the foxface.
