I keep a yellow tang in my 55g. I wouldn't put it in anything smaller than that though. So, for my tang suggestions, and I'm sure others may disagree, I'd stick with a yellow tang or maybe a kole tang. Other fish you could consider are dwarf angels. Lots of choices there.

It's a gamble. Some are more friendly than others. I kept a coral beauty in my reef for years with no problem. Flame angels are supposed to be a safer bet as well.

I think the flame angles are one of the most beautiful fish. I kept one in a small reef for years and he never caused any problems.

I`m the oppisite I had a couple types of angels and had to get rid of all of them for nipping. I agree that yellow and kole is only ones for 55.

I would agree with the Yellow Tang being able to go into your tank. I have a small yellow and a small hippo in my 55 right now. The hippo tang is getting moved into a different tank soon but I might keep the yellow in there. As for the angels it is hit or miss. My mom has a Flame and she has had no problems. Good Luck and HTH
