Multiple Halichoeres Wrasse?

Hey everybody, I have a 120 gallon FOWLR with a juvenile Ornate Wrasse. He is around 3 inches long, and is extremely bold and active, he even sometimes bosses around my Harlequin Tusk. I have a small juvenile Checkerboard Wrasse (Halichoeres hortulanus) in my 30 gallon and I think he is almost big enough (he's around 2.5 inches long) for the FOWLR tank. I am assuming there won't be too many problems, since the two wrasse don't really look alike in color. What do you guys think? Also should I worry about my juvenile Harlequin Tusk (who is 3 inches long) bothering the Checkerboard Wrasse? Thanks.

1) Tahitain Butterfly

3) Juvenile Halrequin Tusk

It "should" work. You'll need to keep an eye on them for a while and be ready to remove one of them.
