Six line wrasse

I recently encountered flat worms in my tank . I noticed my leathers with some then my gonipora . I bought revive and dipped them . They come off quick and die . Two days later I see them in my ricordias. So I bought a six line wrasse to help with the infestation. It looks like he doesn't even look at them.
My question is , can I buy another six line wrasse or will they fight? And I need help because I think it's affecting my zoas.

No they will fight. Try flatworm exit. It actually works really well. Just plan to have a water change ready since you need to suck out all the dying flatworms. Just remember for every 1 you see there are 10 more you don't

Honestly I wouldn't buy a fish to solve the problem. It may or may not eat them. Almost all wrasses are good pest control but I'd do the flatworm exit

What color are they? I doubt it though unless they get to plague proportions.
