Really? How is your coral beauty in a reef environment of that size? Does he pick at the corals often?

I also have a coral beauty in my 29(not a bio cube) and he is happy as can be and hasn't touched any corals yet, knock on wood. Live aquaria had them posted as needing a 30 gallon and has since changed it to a 70. Other sites say 30, I suppose it is up to you but I tend to error on the side of caution. I will be upgrading before he is full grown so I am not concerned but I have read horror stories about dwarf angles and coral.

I agree with more live rock. I have 30 pounds of live rock and 25 pounds of live sand. I didn't like having a flame angel or a coral beauty. They nipped at my zoas and Xenia.

Just read the op on this thread and I would suggest a midas blenny. They are very entertaining and interesting looking. Definitely my favorite fish right now.

Gosh I am tempted, I LOVE dwarf angels, but I would hate to risk my new corals.

I have added more rock, now I am up to ~25 lbs w/ 20 lbs of live sand.

Just looked up a Midas Benny ( was new to me ) they look to have so much personality in their face! A valid option to add.

I don't want to highjack the OPs thread but no my coral beauty doesnt bother anything. He is extrmely peaceful. He's never even bothered my little crocea clam. But I also breed copepods, phytoplankton , rotifers, brine shrimp, and mysis shrimp every now and then. I also grow macro algae in a separate 10g tank for food purposes. So my fish are always getting a constant supply of fresh, live food. I share all of this with my close Freinds who have reefs and out of 7 of us 4 of us have biocube 29s with a coral beauty in them. I believe the good supply of food is what keeps them content with leaving our corals alone. Imo it also depends on the specific fishes attitude

I would have no issue keeping up on feeding a dwarf angel. I think I would prefer a flame angel to a coral beauty, just personal preference. Is there a difference between the two? Or differing reputations?

I would also suggest a Midas blenny as they are easy to care for full of personality and have this weird but awesome pattern and have those googly eyes that give them a ton of personality. For corals I reccomend scans, zoas, Duncan's, pipe organs, frogspawn, hammer, and birdsnest. To be more specific I think the coolest coral of all time are blonde blue eyed b*****es zoas.
