Mystery wrasse 5" and a Radiant 4" The radiant is still new and fairly shy. I have a chance to grab a nice mystery wrasse on the cheap. Just wondering how they would fair together. I have a large CBS and hermits, snails and some emerald crabs too.

My mystery knocked out my shrimps, crabs, and radiant. One of my butterfly keeps him in line now.

wow mystery's can be that aggressive? I think that's rare isn't it?

That is the reputation as I understand it. I have a fairly large Radiant and he is the dominant wrasse of my three Halichoerus wrasses, he's pretty tough, just not "that" tough.
IMO adding the larger Mystery with a newly acclimated and smaller Radiant would be a mistake. Also removal of either one of those fish in a reef tank will be more than difficult so the loser will surely wind up dead.
