    What fish?

    I want to get myself a new fish for my 120g tank that currently has a hippo and a yellow tang. The thing is, I can't make up my mind. I want a mandarin but I don't know if my tank is mature enough and want to wait till I put my 30g upstream fuge online. So next I was thinking about an angel. And was wondering if I can get a large angel or should I stick with pigmy's. Than I was reading on wrasses and how they could help me with my flatworm problems. AHH so many fish to chose from, what do you guys think, any sugestions

    Are you putting corals in there?
    Flame angles are Amazing and would contrast your Blue and Yellow tangs.
    also purple bassetts are quite bright too.

    Corals, all I have are zoas, shrooms and gsp. How does a flame angel and a coral beauty sound. Would I have to add them at the same time or could I add them separately?

    Angels are really Territorial, i haven't expririmented in putting 2 together, there are alot of factors to consider, fish generally look for pattern and shape. (not colour believe it or not)

    coral beauty and flame angels have very close shape, and patterm i donno if it can be done (with a high success rate).

    That is pretty cool but my better half would never agree and she is paying, so you know how it goes. That is kind of why I was thinking of both pigmy angels, she wants the coral beauty and I want the flame angel. I have been reading some more and I would not mind a pair of royal grandmas, hardy, reefsafe and good looking. Any comment on big angels or are they all too big for my tank.

    You could let her name it :biglaugh2

    Gramma are looking great looking fish, I agree.
    Angels are so sweet but it depends on what kind, some of them get sooo big
    i can't think of any larger species that i would reccomend without a 500Gal.

    i was thinking of putting a blue faced or queen angel in my 120 gallon but they are so expensive and rare to come in i wonder if they would get to big, i also have a coral beauty and its a nice fish just dont expect to have it show his face for a few days in the begining
