Really? I guess if I ever see a cheaper flame that is healthy at the LFS I'll buy one.

Are you worried about the angel nipping at your corals? If you are really into corals i would get a cherub angel because im pretty sure they are less prone to, but im sure some will. If your not as worried then bicolor or flame are definitly the two coolest IMO

Haha yeah. I got no corals right now. But I might be getting some softies so we'll see. Hopefully they don't do anything.

Yes, it's the feeding. Flames (in my LFS experience) have always been easier to get onto prepared foods than bicolor.

Cleaner wrasses and dragonets are typically cheap too... most are starving before they even reach the LFS. Ich wasn't the issue overall, IME.

I had to get rid of my half black angel, not only for nipping at LPS, but also at my softies (pricey zoas mostly). They are well-known clam mantle nippers also. You never know. I believe Melosu58 had a bad experience with a flame angel (specifically) in his reef, and in addition to my own experience, I have read many other accounts of this problem. Basically, you can never trust an angelfish in the genus Centropyge- which most certainly involves the pygmy cherub angel.

Basically, you have a decision to make- do you value your potential corals over your dwarf angelfish, or are you prepared to go FOWLR just in case? Based on my own experience, coral munchers tend to be quite expensive in the long run, or you have to tear down your entire tank to get them out (oh, so fun, trust me).

JMHO.
