I'd consider swapping a royal gramma for the dottyback. They're pretty hardy, less aggressive, have about the same body shape, occupy the same kind of niche, and are likely less expensive.

As far as the angel goes, LA does seem to recommend at least a 30 for even a flameback, so I'd assume it would be the same for an Atlantic Pygmy as well.

What about maybe a firefish, court jester goby, or hi-fin banded goby? All those guys will be okay in your tank and are colorful as well.

I would say a Gramma is more peaceful. It's colors also kinda fade into each other.

I think a royal gramma would be a good choice. I had one and really liked her when i could find her. LOL She just got kinda lost in the 125g , I think in the 20g it would be quite pretty to have.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
