    Hey guys, I hope all is well. :)

    I am wanting to stock my tan a little more. Is it possible to have 2 dwarf angels in the same tank. (Flame angel, and a coral beauty)
    I have lots of live rock, and its a 4 foot tank (360L)
    Obviously I would introduce these fish in the tank at the same time.
    I will only do this in the next few months.

    Thanx

    Lots of people say dont keep more than one in a tank, I say if you have enough room that they can have their own little territories and enough rock work to hide inbetween then it should be fine.

    I have 4 in my tank and although they do squabble now and then they generally get along ok and stay out of one anothers way.

    Coral Beauty and Flame Angel is a good combination...they dont usually fight with one another too much...that said though Coral Beauties are REALLY aggro and you may have issues with other newly introduced fish after its established itself...Mine picked on a Purple Tang lets put it that way. :p

    agreed with Kunhardt, ive kept multiple dwarfs in a tank before, but then it was a 1000l system with lots of LR. Personally if i had to choose between the two rather than risk the chance of a squable in a 360l system i would go for the flame. better behaved generally and a stunning colour for any tank.

    i have a flame and a coral beauty in my tank with no issues at all.
    My mate had a flame, jumping bean and a bi colour in his 70cm cube with no aggression issues.
