Mixing Dwarf Angels

I'm planning on buying a Bicolor angel and a Flame angel for my 55gal. My question is, does anyone have any experience with mixing angels and is there anything I could do to allow this go happen?

I have a 55 gallon tank I have around 40lbs of live rock with lots of places to hide. I mixed a lemon peel and a coral beauty and the coral beauty was dead within 24 hrs this was my story it may be fine if u have a large take 125 or larger

Holy crap! Dang that sucks. I really like angels and would really want them to live together. I've seen people have many angels together but idk how they did it. Maybe just luck.

That's awesome! Were there any fighting when you first introduced them?

No put them in at the same time. That was the key. For me. Don't get me wrong they like their own space so when the other comes they kinda show a hey you in my place kinds attitude but I would not call it fighting at all. Move like a dance that says get out my space. So in a 55 might be a little tight.

Alright. Thanks for the advice! Im still deciding if I want to risk have 2 angels together. I really want a bicolor and a flame, not sure which I would rather prefer.

In a 55 there is bound to be fighting. Some people can't keep 2 in a 125.
