leviskimsboards, either you didnt see Todds question or chose to ignore it, either way, some of us are curious as to how you define succesful.
one glance at the liveaquaria.com profile of them offers ample reason to reconsider.
its not that we dont want you to have a cleaner wrasse, its that we need to do our part in practicing responsible husbandry. simply scooping a fish out of the see and keeping them isnt responsible

Cleaner Common Wrasse

you are still avoiding the initial question. ultimately none of us can force you to do anything and its your tank. But its a bit disheartening when an individual comes here for advice and members try to help but the op doesnt contribute/absorb the advice given.

My last one I had for over a year. He ate brine shrimp. I had an eel the he would be cleaning all the time. I guess I just got lucky..... We will see how this guy will do. I think what I'm doing is fine. You guys have given me a lot of advice that I have taken to make my tank even better! I appreciate it very much!

I'm just not a fan of being lucky in this hobby and it living one year is far from a success story. Fish should live years.

I kinda feel a responsibility as a pet owner (fish, dogs, reptiles, etc) to provide my pets with what they need to thrive. If I know I can't, I move on and find something I can care for properly. I don't feel right about it otherwise. I never get what I want because I feel it is "okay".

As someone else said, it's not like anyone here doesn't want you to have fish, but it would be more comforting to see suitable choices.
