Some say different body types get along together, while I have seen it go either way.
And with 650 litres do you think that's suffice for them to live together. The naso I have is very placid but its just the new one coming in could upset everything?

Hopefully all goes well though.
Ill take on board everything you've said seem very knowledgable.

That's a pretty good sized tank......roughly 170 gallons or so? A good amount of places to hide, if need be?

I would think that they will be okay together in a tank that large. As Mr X said, it is often up to the fish that you get. Unfortunately, they don't read books and ultimately will do whatever they want.
