Lamarck's Angelfish

Hey, I just bought this fish for my 125G. I paid for it and will pick it up from my LFS next saturday. I have looked around and see it is reef safe. I am planning on some corals for this tank.
I am looking for any advice. If it is a no go, I can just get a refund. One thing, I am planning on a pair of mated yellow stripe maroon clowns.

Nice find! I have been wanting a Lamarck's forever, so I'm jealous

They are reef safe, and IMO seems like a good fit for your 125. Congrats!

Sweet, thanks for the info! I can see if my LFS will order another one. The price was $34.99.

Lamarck's are one of the few angels that are really great for reef tanks. From what I have read they shouldnt bother anything, even inverts!

If only I had a large enough tank!

Thanks for offering though!

The write up from LA says they are Reef OK but I`ve made the NO angelfish pledge and I`m not going back. Good luck on your new aquisition.

I have had pretty good success with a variety of angels, centropyges and even large marine angels in the reef setting. It appears like, if you keep them fed, that they do rather well not eating corals.
