As per title, would a Pacific Redstripe Hogfish compete for copepods with a Mandarin?

I initially wanted to put a small fairy/flasher wrasse, but I don't like them that much.
I found a nice Pacific Redstripe Hogfish, but I'm not sure if it'd compete for pods with a mandarin, or it'd let them be - more like a fairy/flasher wrasse.
Any insight?

Thanks a lot!

Hi, hogfish do not eat copepods. You can keep peaceful ones with mandarins no problem.
