    I don't think the two dwarf angels will get along, but it's hit it miss.
    The tangs I'm not sure on. They should get along though.

    these 2 might have an issue with each other, depending on size.

    also the Jumping bean / African flameback is known to be very aggressive. Again, depending on size difference, if coral beauty is bigger they might get along.

    all also depends on the rockwork and how much hiding place there really is to get away from one another.

    Desjardinii will almost certainly fight with a veliferum. The angels will probably be ok if the bean goes into the coral beauties tank. Other way around and I think the bean would hammer the beauty.

    Can't comment on the Angels. My desjardinii went in after my sailfin and yellow tang, and it was a little smaller. Never had any issues with them. They get along fine together. Maybe I was lucky.
