Question Would flasher wrasse be ok?

Hello everyone. I've been reading a lot lately to see what I choose as my final fish for my 20 gallon fowlr. I came across the Carpenter's Flasher Wrasse. I read that one would do fine in a 20 gallon because of its small size. Does anyone have any experience with these? And if so do you think it would do alright with what I have in my tank already?

They reccomend a 50 Gallon tank.

I personally would not put one in a 20g.

I agree with Matt and Ray. Wrasses are notorious jumpers.

Man. A lot of places said it would be alright. Only liveaquaria said otherwise. Well alright. Thanks anyways. I was kind of guessing this much. Just wanted confirmation. If it was only the jumping thing then My lid would take care of it. But space i guess would be a problem.
