    Told a Coral Beauty would be fine

    So I was told by some people and online that a 30 gallon tank is big enough for a Coral Beauty. Found out after i put him in it isn't fine. He is chasing the clownfish around and the shrimp is in a cave. Should I try to trade him out, Kijiji, or just try to wait and see.

    Angels are defiantly Semi Aggressive. 30gal is on the small side but still okay IMO.

    If he is this aggressive now and so new he isnt going to calm down. If you dont like what you see then I would get rid of him. Maybe look for a Pygmy, Cherubs are nice and usually pretty calm.

    I have an African Flameback in my tank and he is pretty aggressive when it comes to other fish in his rocks. He mostly picks on my Yellow Tang and Anthias but everyone is doing okay so I leave it alone.

    CB as soon as he went in he took the cf area in the tank. CF finds a new spot CB swims near that spot the CF swims all the way to the top of the tank. Whereever the CF goes the CB goes behind and scares him.

    wow.. they are usually fine.. but the clown did seem to be scared of him in that video.

    angels usually have an aggressive temper ( or more then other species anyway ). but never seen one go after a clown.. 30g isn't all that big once you add the rock for a coral beauty.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.
