Fish Dottybacks

I have a 125 gallon. Just 2 clowns, bi-color blend and some peppermint shrimp. Thinking of getting a dotty back. I keep seeing stories about them not getting along. Would like to know some experiences with them. Also: do they get along with wrasses?

I've had a royal gramma that is really similar and more of a peaceful fish. Dottybacks tend to be aggressive toward similar body types. Wrasses fit into this category for sure. And ur peppermint shrimp would be goners. They are notorious for snacking on small shrimp. I'd take a look at the royal gramma
I am a reefer in honor of our disappearing reefs and to celebrate biodiversity.

Thanks for the info. I picked up a Strawberry dotty back. Hopefully he doesn't stress my clowns out. They're about the same size.
