So your saying two blacks and two oranges? If so the two females will battle to the death for dominance. Especially in that small of a tank I did it in a 90 and it still didn't work I had to separate the pairs.

But if it's just 1 black and 1 orange they know something is different and will usually always fight I always tell people not to do it at the store but they do it anyways and always return one of them

It is very hard to do. I've never seen it work. It works for a couple of weeks and then one day they got at it. Usually they will both turn to female and that's why they fight

Purple reef lobsters are awesome. Never had one so I don't have much experience but I know they can get about 4 inches buy idk what they will do to other inverts.

Yes I have a fire shrimp and some hermits and nassirus snails and he does not mess with them. Never had a problem with him messing with fish. One thing you should know about this reef lobster is that it rarely comes out except at night. I`ve seen mine maybe 6 times in 7 years.

That`s kind of small but provided there is plenty of LR for him to hide and he can get some food you possiblly could. Mine is a 125 gallon tank with 200 Lbs of LR.
