Bird wrasse

Love my bird wrasse but he ate my entire clean up crew. All hermits gone as well as my turbo snails. Is this typical of this wrasse or did I get stuck with a criminal? He doesn't bother my shrimp or any other fish though.

This is normal and as they age they can attack/eat smaller fish (think chromis). I'm surprised your shrimp are fine unless they are cleaner shimp.
