Beautiful fish you should be fine. Wrasses are ok together. I myself am planning on having 3-4 different ones

Wrasses are kinda like tangs. You should not have ones that look alike together. If they look different tho you should be perfectly fine. Theyre kinda like tangs but more compatible. Good Luck!!!!!

They may be fine together with a big enough tank. They are pretty peacful so if you add them at the same time you should be good!!!!!

From my experience and others experiences the Melanarus Wrasse will pick at hermit crabs. I have a tri color fairy wrasse and absolutely love it.
