Yes, although they will pick at feather dusters, pods, etc. Nothing bigger than that though.  You need a reasonable amount of sand for a wrasse too, as they like to bury/sleep in it.

Fairy wrasse are fine, unlike halichoeres, anampses wrasse etc fairy sleep in the rocks and not the sand. My yellow fin fairy and flasher wrasse sleep in the rocks but the other 4 dive in the sand bed
