Lunare Wrasse

I added a lunare wrasse last week and he seemed to be getting along fine...until I got up this morning and noticed that my red knob starfish had chunks taken out of him. I pulled the starfish out, but was wondering if anyone else has had problems like this with a wrasse. Also, should I worry about the wrasse and my other fish. I currently only have 2 damsels, two ocell. clowns, a blenny, a cleaner shrimp, and about two dozen hermits.

Thanks in advance

I have a Lunare Wrasse in a pretty large tank. He is fun to watch. Very active. I think due to their aggressive nature you have to watch what you keep as tankmates. I had a Yellow Tang that I lost not too long after I added him. I think the YT's immune system was stressed by his aggressiveness. Also a very aggressive eater right from my hand. He eats flakes also.
