My LRS calls them dwarf angels that might not be scientifically correct but they said the only caution I would need to worry about is theres a possibility they will pick on corals and put them in when your tanks established and I bought both of mine from the same store I had him show me that they eat whatever you give them.

29 or 14 corralife biocube

I agree they can and will eat corals as I had a friend whose ate a clam and a lot of acans. I disagree that a biocube is a proper home for an open water swimming fish like a dwarf angel. They can also get about 4-4.5". If you do decide to get one which I don't agree with please don't get a potters, they're an extremely tricky fish to get eating.

Just remember there's no guarantees like I said I made sure my potters ate in the store now he eats nori picks algae and eats pellets there's no guarantee it won't eat coral but its not like its 100 percent fact it will either its a gamble that's all up to you.

+1. Angels do not belong in bio cubes. If your so set on this type of fish why not just get a tank that can properly handle it? A 40b would be perfect, and you'd probably be happier using your own equipment choices in the long run. There are so many great fish that can live perfectly in a bio cube so why not choose from them or set up a tank that's the proper size for the fish you want.

Two angels would not work in a 40b either. They can be very very aggressive to each other and its just not worth the risk.

But a 40b would be a great tank, i have one myself and it is big enough that you can keep a bunch more fish than a 29g biocube and yet not so big its a hassle to maintain.

I had a biocube for several years, its a great tank but not for the fish stocking you want.
