I have a 60gal Cube with 2 clowns, 1 chrome and 1 yellow tang and i'm looking to add a new fish. I was thinking some type of wrasse but im not set on anything at this point. I've had a six line wrasse before and i love their colors but i'm thinking wanna try something different. Any suggestions?

I was thinking maybe a mandarin goby since they have nice colors but id need to stock up on cope pods. Anything else that has nice colors that would get along in my tank?

How about a flame angel or a coral beauty angel,

Make the Dwarf angel your last fish. They are very territorial for their size. You need a very mature tank with lots of live rock to sustain a Mandarin. And then you have to worry about competition for pods from other fish because they will all out compete the manny for pods.

Ive been contemplated getting a flame angel or Beauty angel for some time now. I'm kind of worried that they might pick on my acans. Whats your feed back on dwarf Angels picking on lps

If you're worried, look at a Cherub dwarf-dwarf angel or one of Lamark/Bellus/Watanabe angel species which are completely reef-safe.

I have 2 dwarf angel fishes ( pygmy, flame). They have not touched any corals YET. I have had them for 9 months.. I have been told that I'm really lucky to have 2 dwarf angels in one tank though

It is RSM130. Many people said one will kill the other but it has bot happened. In fact, they hang out together.
What I did though, before I introduced a flame angel, I changed rockscape and took out pygmy then introduce them together.
Also, I picked Flame(red) because the color (pygmy is deep blue) is not similar and Flame is bigger..

There is one member ( it think his name is George not sure)who collects dwarf angels and he knows way better than I do :)

When it comes down to getting a dwarf angels, you have to take some risk.. another angel that you may want to look at is coral beauty. it is one of the angel that has the least chance to pick on corals.

I don't have any expensive corals in my tank because of these guys :) only hammer, frogspawn, acan, plates, some low end zoas.. I would be ok if they end up eating one of those.. :)
