I do not have experience with them but I know they are not reef safe and grow to around a foot.

Really? I thought some were kinda reef safe. Like they only eat some corals.

Some of the dwarf angels are considered reef safe with caution. I have a coral beauty in my tank that has yet to bother anything.

I see. I think I am going to go with the Coral Beauty, I have been looking into those. Also, since I dont want to make a new thread, is the Dwarf/Zebra and Volitan Lionfish reef compatible? The smallest fish I will have is the Royal Gramma. Will it eat that? Will it eat corals? I really like the looks of these fish. Will they sting other fish and kill them? Are they a good addition to a tank?

My keyhole and flame took 5 years to decide they wanted to be nippers. By the time I figured it out I lost a couple corals.

I would avoid the lion. It will also put a heavy bioload on the tank.
