I don't run a heater in my cube but I live in Florida. I do have one for when winter comes though in case I need it. How cold does it get where you live?

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

Reef safe dwarf angels

I wanted a tang but that can't happen in a 29. I am looking at dwarf angels. Are there any that are reef safe?

Unfortunately, all Dwarf Angels have a 50/50 chance at nipping at your corals. I had a Lemonpeel Angel that rarely ever nipped, but That could have changed as time progressed.

It's 50/50 with angels like redsea mentioned. These are the conclusions I've seen happen the most:
a)The angel doesn't nip at all and lives fine with the corals.
b)The angel doesn't nip for the first few years and then suddenly nips.
c)The angel nips right from the start.

+1 I agree with the above info.

I wouldn't get an angel in a reef. I've had to take rock scape completely apart before and I would hate to do that for an angelfish. I can also never put the rocks back quite the same way as before. NOT WORTH IT IF YOUR TANK IS BIGGER THAN 10g.
