    dwarf angels

    ok folks ive been going over my list of fish wants and was hoping for 2 dwarf angels but i realize now its just safer to go with one...so here are my choices of preference, i am hoping for any info any of you have on these fish ive read as much as i can about each online but would like any first hand knowledge you can give.

    flame angel
    bi-color angel
    coral beauty
    black nox
    Banded Multifasciatus

    other possible fish im looking at putting in are 2 clowns(probably false percs) a lawnmower blenny, royal gramma or a goby. am looking at adding some corals and zoos and stuff eventually but nothing right away
    forgot to mention the tank is a 66 gal
    thanks for your help

    Cherubfish

    You don't have this little fellow on your list. He is one of my all time favorite angelfish. Small, colorful, personable and classified as easy to keep. You may want to consider him as well.

    Yes it is a Cherubfish ... AKA Pygmy Angelfish... They are classified as very peaceable but I have never kept more then one in the same tank.

    oh was told by LFS that he had 3 in a 75 gal and they were all fine i guess as everything in this hobby, anything is possible but depends greatly on the personality of the fish

    Anything is possible but with the limited # of fish you will want in your reef tank you might want to save that extra spot for something else.

    If you want to keep a Reef, you may want to reconsider Angels, as most are nippers.

    Some of the dwarf angels don't ever develop a taste for coral, but when they do, you have to make a choice on either them or the coral.

    check out this compatibility chart. The Cherubfish is not on the list but others are.
