Sorry, I misunderstood.
I think that they might be fine. You would see aggression, I didn't mean to give the impression they are like my kids and only hit each other when I am not around,
. You would see them chasing or being chased, so if they are behaving when you are there, they should be behaving when you aren't...
Again, I think that if there is ample amount of hiding spaces and you keep them regularly fed, you should be ok.
Is there a lid on this tank? I had a six-line wrasse chase multiple fish up and out of my 46 bow. I think that particular tank was too small for him (I still absolutely love those fish) and he did a lot better in the 150 when I moved him.
So keep an eye on them. Is there anywhere one can go if aggression starts?
