    what colour is the mouth. Id agree that looks like a flagfin angel, but they normally have blue lips.

    that might just be bevause thats a juvi though.

    not the most reef safe fish to add, what corals do you have?

    Doesn't have a blue or purple mouth, just plain yellow.

    I think that this baby fish will become a problem in my current tank. Good thing my new tank will be built in the next 3 months.

    Its in a tank now with only 3 other small fish, all seems good now.

    i recall one fella on reef central saying that his flagfin angel reduced his reef tank to a FOWLR as it ate every coral it could, but it had a great personality and thus he couldnt get rid of the fish. :)

    They will hammer your coral and are a little more harder to keep in captivity.
    Still is a Beautiful fish in a FOWLR
