Anyone have long term success with a pair of Choati wrasses?

I have had one for a couple months that is doing great. Has me tempted to try a smaller one but I'm scared to rock the boat. I treated it with Prazi and I also injected PE mysis with panacur every 3 days for a total of 4 treatments when it arrived. Not sure if made a difference in survival but I'm hoping at least all worms should definitely have been killed off. Mine eats PE mysis, Hikari mysis, enriched brine, and I throw in a few dozen salt water ghost shrimp occasionally. Just wondering if both with eventually turn male and try to kill each other

Iíve had two large males (sold as a M/F pair but came in as 2 males) together in my tank since July. They get along fine and eat everything I throw in.

I did put them in at the same time which may have prevented any territorial aggression but Iíve had a few over the years and havenít found them to be aggressive fish.

Thanks. I might go for it if I manage to find a nice small one.

Definitely will. Took a while to find my first healthy one though. I imagine finding a small one thatís healthy will be much harder.

At least 3.5". I think it's probably reaching max size of 4".

Those are very nice wrasses but I am a bigger fan of that green gig you got in that pic
