Six line wrasse compatibility

I have a 90g FOWLER w/ a tang, clown and chromis. Some cleaner shrimp, blood shrimp, and the usual assortment of CUC.
Will a six line fit in okay?
Some charts say caution with the chromis, some profiles say they are peaceful as long as they are fed and have plenty of LR.
Any thoughts?

That will be fine, there might just be a little agression. I have a sixline, a chromis and a black false perc in my 23.8G with no troubles at all now. Just a little agression earlier. Now that the Sixline is the boss everyone's happy.

I have a six-line wrasse with a royal gramma, clown (percula), and chromis.
There is a cleaner shrimp, peppermint shrimp, and a bunch of other inverts in there. I haven't had any issues with these fish. When a hada damsel in there with them, that was different story. These guys will steal food from each other at times, but no nipping or anything like that.

Six lines are kind of hit or miss as far as aggression. I`ve really heard some horror stories but I also know a few that have some pretty good behavior out of them.

Mine is a model citizen. He's an interesting guy to watch nad is currently intrigued by my new clam. Probably hoping for some of the snails that prey clams - they eat those.

I have a a 6-line wrasse with 2 clownfish, sunrise dottyback, royal gamma basset, yellow tang, blue tang, and 4 blue green chromis's. She is a model citizen until the dottyback chases her then she goes after the dottyback. besides that she is very peaceful in my tank.

Mine has his days...Mine is kept with two clowns and a strawbery baslet. He spends most his time inspecting the tank, but sometimes starts fights with the others. Turning the lights off usually calms him down. That, or he gets his tail bit off and goes off to hide.
