I've kept many angelfish in the past and I've had mixed success... I final decided to go with these and they haven't let me down.

What angelfish do you keep in a reef tank?

pygmy angels are generally more reef save than larger angels. There are exceptions.
Only pygmy angel I have is a coral beauty, and it does not bother anything.

I have a jumping bean that tends to nip a few of my sps. Luckily its small so it doesnt do too much damage
Sorry about going off topic. Can the Jumping beans be purchased, if yes, from where ?

They are really lovey.

I had a jumping bean a while back and mine was wild. Had to take him out eventually as he was killing some of my other fish

of the small pygmy angels, I think the jumping bean is one of the more aggressive species available.

And depending on tank size, not an ideal candidate on smaller tanks. Limits your options on other tankmates a lot.

I never knew they were so aggressive
