Being married to HN1, I've had the same experience with dwarf angels. It may work, but be prepared to move everything if it doesn't.

Most importantly, I don't think your tank is large enough for any angels, especially with the other fish you have.

Really? I've really wanted one and they've been suggested to me even when people know my tank size.

Really... IMO a dwarf angel shouldn't be kept in anything less than a 3 foot 30 gallon tank. We currently have one in a 30 gallon cube (not ideal) until we figure out what to do with it.... it's our coral munching half black.

Hmm. Ok what should I do then? Get one and see how it goes? Get a small one? My LFS usually has some nice small ones for sale. BTW I love your avatar severum mama.

Thanks!

Rather than taking a chance with an angel, I'd recommend researching fish that are reef safe and are appropriate choices for your tank size throughout the life span. Are you interested in gobies at all? There are many species that would be a great addition to your tank. A royal gramma or chalk basslet would be nice instead.

I love my fish geek!

I was intending to get a Firefish Goby and Yellow Clown Goby.
OK Tank Stocking List for fish:
I have:
1 Black False Perc
1 Chromis
1 Six-Line Wrasse

I'm thinking of getting:
1 Royal Gramma
1 Firefish Goby
1 Yellow Clown Goby

Maybe a Mandarin?

Mandarins will need a larger tank that has an established fuge and pod population and should be ruled out for now IMO. Your list looks pretty good to me. I'd add the gramma last, but that's just me.

Just a guess. If your clown and wrasse are going to have issues with any of those fish or vise versa, I'd suspect it will be the RG. The goby and firefish should be fine I think.
