Wrasse question

Hi,
I have a 35 gallon fowlr tank and I would like to add a six line wrasse and was wondering what your thoughts were. I currently have 3 blue green chromis 2 clowns a gold head sleeper goby 1 cleaner shrimp and some crabs and snails as cuc. I read that the wrasse could be aggressive toward other wrasse or fish of the same size and don't want to upset the tank everybody is getting along great and don't want to ruin it. Any opinions would be great.
Thanks

Wrasses eat inverts inc shrimp especially, I wouldn't, shrimp can be expensive food.

My six line has never gone after my pistol shrimp, cleaner shrimp or peppermint shrimp. They just need hiding spots he isvery active and very peaceful!

Not all wrasses have this behavior. Many are quite reef safe and do not eat inverts.

Mine is pretty chill and he gets along great with his tank mates. Great colors too.

Two groups of Wrasse. Reef safe and not. 6 line would be fine and won't eat the clean up crew.

I loved my six line but he died a week ago. He mostly left my cleaner shrimp alone but I did see him with a hermit in his mouth.

Sorry you lost your fish. I love my six line. He's awesome to watch. Will you get another one?
