    Default coris wrasse compatibility??

    I have a yellow coris wrasse, and would like a green one also. Are 2 coris wrasse, of the same color (or not even) compatable in a tank together??

    Cant recall ever running across this info....

    I just did this in my tank about two monthsago, I had a yellow and bought a green one slightly smaller than the yellow.
    they are ok till they get to close to each other then there is a slight struggle for feeding ground..
    But no major damage done, more of just posturing than anything..
    Is was funny the other day, the green coris wrasse found a Stomatela snail and had it in his mouth but the shell was blocking his forward vision. And what caught my eye was the yellow wrasse was chasing the green one all over the tank for like 5 mins trying to steal that snail..
    very funny to watch a green wrasse bump into rock while being chased down by the yellow wrasse..
    The green did eventually get to beat the snail on a rock and eat it but It sure was a good show..
