Yes you do know the answer Queens are a large species of Angels and will take over that tank as well as the tank being too small for him anyway. That size is better for dwarf and pigmy type Angels not full sized ones.

For what it's worth, buying a fish because you " feel sorry for it" is a bad, VERY bad reason to buy it. You should be investigating any fish you are considering buying to make sure that it is healthy, stabile, and will get along with your existing setup. There was a reason that was the last fish in that store. The reasons I can come up with are all not in favor of buying fish there.

Hope this helps

Thank you for helping with my choice of fish here, I was never interested in the firefish. I found a fox face that I dont mind. Possible? If not what are some fish that are good for my talk that have beautiful colour to them?? By that I mean multi colour.

Haha, Ik why I did was a horrible thing, but I couldn't just leave him, and he has a bigger one to and on sale. Though Ik what I did was wrong in every way, but I got lucky and he's happy with the tank mates and there happy with him too. Unfortunately he thinks its fun to swish the sand in the same spot every time and make huge holes. And as soon as I put the sand back to where it belongs, he does it again 2 minutes later. Some sort of game I guess haha.

The mystery wrasse is multiple colored. I would not add the fox face. He will probably bother your tang or vice versa

The coral beauty will be harassed by flame angel until it dies. You can only keep one angel per tank.

What about some yellow tail damsels?

I agree with the others. Two dwarf angels will fight. Really bad idea. I'm not opposed to the Foxface idea. I don't think it would pester the yellow tang. They can hold their own with aggressive fish. That should be okay. The yellow tang needs a larger tank, so I would seriously reconsider that fish.

Damsels can be extremely nasty little fish. I've had them and would never get one again. Chromis are more mild mannered.

Have you looked at places like liveaquaria or bluezoo? Lots of ideas there. Pay attention to suggested tank sizes. There are several wrasses that would work for you.

This is actually where I've been looking for fish (live aquaria). Yellowtail damselfish require minimal 30 gallons. Can this be a possibility for me? If possible could I get too?

Possible, yes. A good idea, IMO, no. Damsels can be aggressive. A lot of people get them because they are inexpensive and later get rid of them because they harass other fish. They are nearly impossible to catch without ripping up your tank.

A royal gramma might work
