Two male mandarin dragonettes

I have a 180 gallon reef tank, loaded with live rock, sump and a refuguim dedicated to breeding copepods. I bought from a local LFS what I was told was a male and female mandarin pair. Well, they are both males. I've tried to catch one of them, but no luck. Can two males live together or will they kill each other? I am just sick about the prospect of them harming each other.
thanks, Marci

Not really sure since I'm not familiar with mandarins. Normally two males would be bad news, but in a 180g tank (I'm jealous) that might not be as bad as normal. How do you know they're both males?

Also... you might want to post in the "Saltwater and Reef" section of the forum. This section is normally for questions and comments regarding the forum software and the forum (community) itself. I'm thinking a moderator will move this thread soon, but you might get more "traffic" and answers if you post over there!

And welcome to AquariumAdvice!
