Dwarf angel for reef tank

Well about a month ago i made a huge mistake with eveything going so good with my 75gal reef tank& like everything else i do i had to push the limit. Ive had 2 false percs from begining later added 3 pj cardinals then a small coral beauty looking at how nice everything looked, thought how cool it would be to make last fish a flame angel, kind of worried about angels getting along.of course lfs said should be no problem in tank that size. Wrong. Coral beauty was on flame till it killed it,beauty contacted ich from stress. Remaining fish seem to be fairing well.
Do reefers have better luck with coral beautys or flames with stress or corals,cuase next time itll be one or the other. Thanks

u don't only have to worry about aggression with other fish but when it comes to a reef tank and dwarf angels they are known to nip and pick at allot of corals and makes it a waste of money and nice corals. And then there hard as ever to catch once u take the gamble about putting one in your reef.. but every fish is different so u never really know .

I would look into a smaller tang of some sort. With 75 gallon.s there not a huge selection of tangs but there are a few that would be good in your tank. I would away from the angels if u are going to be doing corals on the future

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

You can always go with a school of chromis. Those buggers swim everywhere.
