I am setting up a 150 gallon reef. I would like to keep the following four male flasher wrasses- Carpenters, Blue flasher, McCosker's and Line spot (P. Lineopunctatus). Will they coexist peacefully? I am also planning to get one female of one of the above species- whichever is available. I've read that Carpenters can be aggressive towards other male flasher wrasses.

I have a Paracheilinus attenuatus, and a lineopunctatus together without issue. But I have a feeling if you put the blue flasher and lineopunctatus together there might be a war. They are closely the same color but you never know. I would try it though.

No issues. I have various male flasher wrasses in my two tanks with no issue whatsoever.
