Usually if you get them with different colors and body shapes then they stand a better chance.

It is going to be a gamble. Housing mixed Centropyge sp. is not recommended unless the tank is very large with plenty of LR so they ca both find their own territory. A 55 may be a stretch, however, individual fish do vary in temperment.

yeah its what i am thinking . flame angels arent too cheap to buy either ,. it would be pretty to add to my reef ill see what happens. in the end ill have an eible angel mandarin, tomato clown, and possibly a flame angle or coral beauty.

You do know that the dwarf angels are not reef safe right.

I think it depends on the fish. Some people's flame angels nip on corals and some don't.

With me I had a keyhole angel and a coral beauty. They were perfect little angels for 4 yrs and then whammo. All of a sudden I have a couple corals that are destroyed. You might be getting away with it now but be on notice that it could happen yrs down the road. This is IME. Hopefully it wont happen but keep an eye out. I`ve made the pledge No more angels.
