Mccosker school

So I have this beautiful male McCoskers wrasse and some space in my stocking for more fish in my 90g.

I was wondering if anyone had tried to keep a school of them before. I've heard anywhere from 2 females per male to 5 females per male to make it work. I'm wondering what the real number is.

I have a pair of mccoskers in my 75 I tried to add anotger but they picked on it left and right for a month and I finally had to get her out of there. I have seen where they are great schooling fish but I had no luck.

I think they do better in groups when added at the same time. That way there is not as much "what are you doing coming into my territory?"
