Would this fish combo work?

I recently got a melanarrus wrasse to take care of a flat worm problem I've been having lately. When I got the wrasse, I told the people at my LFS of the fish that I already have (1 one spot rabbitfish, 1 occelaris clownfish, 1 kole tang, and 1 fairy wrasse). I went to another store and they said that the melanarrus wrasse would bully the fairy wrasse. Is this true? The melanarrus is still in QT and I have a 75 gal reef. They are both roughly the same size (if that would matter) for now. Would the melanarrus and fairy wrasse get along?

There is a chance that the two wrasses will fight. If I could make a suggestion do some research on your selections before you get them. Your LFS is just trying to make a sell. I would take their advice with a grain of salt. They could possibly make it but IMO probably not. Maybe some others can give some advice.
