    its not impossible to do but in my experience with bi colors they can be very agressive to new introductions and definatley to a member of the same species.. we gonna need more info..

    pictures will help..

    there seems to be enough hiding places to allow the flame to escape but your bi color does look like a big boy, how long have you had him? nice tank BTW..

    It is possible, before adding him, re-arrange your aquascaping so that the Bi colour will be confused and will have to seek new territory :)

    are they aggressive to all new introductions, or just other angels?

    My bi-color didn't even look at my Flame when I introduced him. The Coral Beauty did however:whistling:

    I had a Coral Beauty then added a Rusty who decided he was going to stay hidden in the LR. Within a week I added a Flame. The Beauty chased the Flame and so flushed out the Rusty. Within a day or two all calm was restored to the tank. This was in Feb this year and all 3 are still living peacefully together.

    Hi yes agree. The worst case is when u will need to take the bi colour out for 3 weeks to allow flame to settle. Then chuck him back in. Nice leather, never seen it before. If u wanna frag swap let me know, Ive got a few leathers 2

    First of all thank you all for all the compliments,replies and good advise.I will add the flame angel at a later stage,and see how it goes.

    My big boy angel is in my tank for about six months now,and he seems to be very happy hehehe.He is just a little bit naughty these days,he is nipping my green button polyps.
