Reef compatible angelfish

I have a 40g breeder and so far only have a pair of clowns in it. I really want an angelfish in there, but this tank is going to be SPS dominated with a mix of other corals. Has anyone had an angelfish do well in a reef tank? Thanks.

I was asking the same question in my thread and so far nothing that has been suggested shows as reef safe. :-(

But I'm following here to see what comes up! lol

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

You have to check sizes, but the Genacanthus genus is safe.

What type of coral do you have? That angelfish is kinda expensive and that would be a disappointment to have one start nipping at my coral.

So far, all of the ones that I've seen are too big for a 40g unfortunately.

I know but I'm trying to see if people are successful at keeping dwarf angelfish in reefs and which types.

I've had my coral beauty with corals for about six months now. He's really good with the corals. I saw him nip at my colt coral once but has not seemed interested since. No damage has ever been noticed. It'll be hit or miss though, I can't garuantee that one won't. But I don't think if they do nip, that they'll destroy your corals.
