Is this Angel really reef safe?

Hi everyone!

According to LA, they say that the Lamarck's Angelfish is reef safe, is this true. If so, I may want one for my 125g.

Thanks!

I love the days where I don't have anything to do, and I can just stay on Aquarium Advice all day. It is lost of fun!

Also, do you know what the differences are between the male and female of this fish? Is the coloration different? Can a keep a pair of this fish?

Thank you.

You might have luck with a pair of you get them at the same time, but you probably won't know if they are male and female. They start out as females and eventually one will turn male. It took mine 4 yrs to turn from female to male. While it was a female and was in my tank around 3 yrs I tried adding a big male. The female killed it in 3 days. She, who is now a he is a very dominant (mean) fish.

Yep, I heard that it is basically a 50/50 chance. But at anytime they can go form not touching a coral, to eating your reef.
