No guarantees with any type of angel. Pat... Would you agree that the Flame and/or the Coral Beauty would be alright if kept fed?

look at the fairy wrasses, clowns (not maroon clowns), cardinals, damsels, some gobies, some blennies, dartfish (firefish), dottybacks, filefish, hawkfish, hogfish, and jawfish. all of those must be researched to figure if they work for you and the rest of the tank mates. especially if you decide on having inverts.

You say this due to the aggresive nature correct? I have a Gold Banded one and it has to be the nastiest fish i've ever had. Especially with two bubble tips to defend.

not only aggression, but sheer size.

I have two tangs in a 55gal (4ft) long tank. One yellow and one Desjardin Sail Fin but I will be moving them to a bigger tank. Right now they are only about 3-4 inches long. My yellow is very shy and not to aggressive compared to others yellow tangs that I have seen.

If you are keeping dwarf angels there is a risk that they will nip at coral. They seem to like soft corals and particularly yummy looking LPS coral. Some people suggest that feeding a bit more will help reduce the problem but there is never a sure bet. The reef safe wrasses are another good option since they are very active swimmers as well. Look at candy hogfish (Bodianus bimaculatus). They are another good choice.
