    dwarf angels and a few questions..

    just wondering a few things..

    my wife and i were at a few LFS in T.O. and the people there told my wife that Dwarf angels are mostly reef safe..

    refering to flame and coral beauty.. my wife wanted one but i said no way.. i read lots about them niping at corals...

    anyhow are tere any truth to what these people say.. most of them say they have one or the other in their reef tanks??

    also im looking for a yellow hardy fish for my 75gal reef tank..
    i have crush coral substrate.. small sized.. any thoughts?

    also i am battling brown cotton type algae on my substrate.. pain in the arse.. i did water changes with ro/di water TDS 0.. every week for last 2 months.. i went threw a crap load of salt lol..
    my nitrates are ~5.. phos 0..
    ph 8.2
    temp 78
    sg 1.024-25
    cal 390
    alk 9

    all my corals and fish are great..

    my bio-load consist of:
    2 small false percs.
    1 Bangaii cardinal
    1 blue-sided wrasse

    i have 10 scarlet Reef crabs
    10-15 blue legs
    20 golden snails
    20 astrea snails.
    4 other type of snails..

    tank corals consist.

    I'd stay away from the dwarf angel species... it's a 50/50 chance that it'll work out.
    If you're considering an angel, I'd look into the Genicanthus species instead of dwarfs.

    I have a Bellus Angel in my tank. Perfect citizen with all my coral (LPS, SPS, shrooms).... even doesn't touch any of my clams. They are 99% reef-safe. The odd one here and there will nip at LPS.

    Genicanthus species:
    Female Bellus Angel:


    Female Melanospilos Swallowtail:


    Female Japanese Masked Semifasciatus Swallowtail:


    Male Japanese Masked Semifasciatus Swallowtail:


    Male Watanabei:

    I'm sure Ivan can get them for you. I've seen him bring in the Female Melanospilos Swallowtail and female Bellus from time to time...

    mp123,
    Chancy at best. I wouldn't attempt it. Besides, what would you do with it once it reaches adulthood? Not fair to you or the fish...
