Out of curioisty, what temperature is the water in your biocube? I also live and Florida and the water temperature in my 29gal biocube is fairly warm (80-82F) and always runs a few degrees above room temperature (which is 78-79F, I also don't use don't use a heater). I think the heat generated by the circulation pump, an additional powerhead and perhaps the lights keep my biocube fairly warm and slightly above room temperature.

Yep, it depends on your house temperature and whatever heat your equipment adds to your tank. Being airtight wouldn't make a difference, not that the biocube is airtight anyway. Heat transfers through any medium, including air, the glass of your tank, etc. So if you always keep your house at 75+ and your tank stays above 75, you don;t need a heater. But if your house gets cold in winter, then you would. It would probably be a good idea to get one, just incase something happens and it will keep your tank temps more constant, whereas your air temperature could fluctuate.

Dwarf/pygmy angels are the closest to a tang lookalike in that sized tank. Lemonpeels are flame angels are the most popular, but like people mentioned, they aren't completely reef safe. It depends on the fish, some never touch corals, and some completely ravage them.
