What wrasse to add?

I am upgrading to a 300 gallon tank and want to add a few more wrasses. I currently have a McCosker, solar fairy, exquisite, blue sided fairy and a mystery wrasse. Other inhabitants are naso, yellow, hippo tang, flame and blue face angel, blue spot jawfish, chromis, foxface rabbit and 2 percs. The wrasses I am thinking about and like are: Lubbocks, Christmas, radiant, labouti, lineatus(both a little pricey), rubyhead and orange back. How many more wrasses could I add to this set up? What would some of you who keep wrasses suggest and are there any others I haven't listed which would fit in without squabbling?

With a 300 gallon tank you could keep quite a few more wrasses. Almost all of the fairy wrasses get along with most fish. My tank is 225g and I have 17 wrasses in it right now, most of them fairy's
Do a search on Cirrhillabrus wrasses and you will see how many there are. Alot of them are on the pricey side though.
