furbz you can definatley keep a number of dwarf angels, i had a few in my tank....but the size of a tank is of primary concern, two small and they will hammer each other. what size tank do u have, and which angels are you thinking of?

two lovely angels there, especially the potters:)

the flame can be a little more aggresive.

i am not certain on minimal tank size for the flame so i am going to let more knowledgeable guys answer:)

Flame Angels minimum tank size is 30 gallons, according to most sites i read up on. They are awesome fish. Got one myself last week, he's a bit cowardly though and gets bullied by my bicolor blenny some times.

As long as there is enough caves and crevices they will be fine Kunhardt.
Cool, been thinking of getting a pygmy at some later stage. My fear is that its smaller than the flame and would get bullied.

Hi Guys,

Mekaeel is the one to ask. I have a 300 lt DT. I started with a juvenile Coral Beauty in November last year. Two weeks ago I purchased an adult Rusty Angel who, causing much stress, hid away for about 5 days. I thaen bought a Flame Angel who on the first evening was chased around by the Coral Beauty, flushing out the Rusty in the process. Since Friday last week calm has returned and the 3 Angels are living in relative harmony. I too have plenty of hiding places for the Angels.

Lemon peel angels can be coral nippers. If you introduce them together it will be a whole lot better than introducing them after one another.

Every angel has a chance of nipping corals, some more than others. Like an emperor is way more prone to nipping than a flame. it also depends on individual character
