Angels can be hardier than tangs as a rule but all should be considered suspect and QT'd just the same. The main problem for angels is primarily fungal infections and are quite ceceptable to lympho. They are however much less prone to ich and HLLE as tangs. Dwarfs are much the same but due to size, many are cyanide caught which causes severe internal damage primarily to the liver and do not live long after capture.
