You can try it, but be prepared to remove one. In a 125 they would probably find their own space and squabble only occasionally. In a 48 I think they would constantly harass each other.

You could get another fish, I don't think that would put you overstocked at all. Is this a reef or FOWLR? If you do get the midas i would rearrange the rock before so both fish feel like they are in a new area, might help some.

I would not chance my entire tank with a box fish. You already have one moderately aggressive fish that will most likely stress it. Look elsewhere.
