Flame and Coral Beauty??

Just got a coral beauty for my 40 gallon! So beautiful, very active cruising in an out of the rocks. So, has anyone put a flame angel in with a CB? I just removed 2 bully fish from my tank, so everyone is very peaceful now. Is adding a flame angel too risky?

Yes. I've heard of even bigger tanks having issues with 2 dwarf angels. I know saltwater.com won't even sell you 2 dwarf angels, it's that bad.

Angels are not suppose to be kept together usually one per tank. Flames are also a little agresssive.

I agree that they will be trouble. Those two IME are both going to fight it out.

I have both. In a 150 gallon. I got the coral beauty a little bigger than the flame. And had to put them in at the same time. They are doing great. 8 months so far no problems.

Two of my tanks have 2 dwarf angels in each with now problems at all, I keep a flame and coral beauty in one and a lemon peel and bicolor in the other. Have never had any problems with them picking on each other but the Lemon Peel is very territorial with new additions.
