    The spelling is good...

    Eibl's Angel, Centropyge eibli

    Beautiful Dwarf Centropyge species angel. As with all Centropyge's, it is reef-safe with caution.
    It may nip at LPS, softies, zooanthids, and clams.

    If you are planning on any of the above, I'd say skip on this fish, as you will most probably have problems with nipping.

    yup, I'd stay away from it, too. You can never be sure. If your tank were twice the size, maybe.

    I would definitely stay away from it...I added one to my 90G tank and ended up having to tear town the tank to get it out. It was constantly picking at LPS corals and clams. I would recommend staying away from all dwarf angels in a reef environment you may get lucky but if not you'll have alot of work ahead of you. Too bad really they have some of the coolest color variations.

    If you really want an angel for your tank, you could always look into the Genicanthus sp. of angels.

    Specifically,
    Genicanthus lamarks
    Genicanthus semifasciatus
    Genicanthus bellus
    Genicanthus watanabei

    ...just to name a few..
