Question about wrasse compatibility

Hi all, just a quick question. HN1 and I just upgraded our reef tank to a 50 gallon (36x18x18 ) and are considering our stocking options. Right now we have a yasha goby, percula clown, and filamented flasher wrasse. We'd like to add a solorensis wrasse (or similar species) if possible. As we understand it, fairy wrasses are pretty peaceful, but we wanted to check with more experienced folks before making a decision. We're a ways off from adding any more fish so we have plenty of time to think about it. Any input or better suggestions is appreciated- thanks for reading!

Some of your wrasses are peaceful but almost all are not with other wrasses. I would be very careful with two wrasses in a 50 gallon tank. JMO

Thanks for the tip. I was under the impression that it might be ok because they are in a different genus, kinda like how people stock tangs.

If you had a very big tank I would think OK just not in a 55.
