And mandarins don't have stomachs so they have to eat all day. Even if it eats prepared foods they have to fed often (3-4x a day). I've been keeping nano reefs for 7 years and haven't owned a mandarin even though they're one of my favorite fish

I was reading a website that had options for different gallon tank and what fish could work in it. On it, there is flame angel and coral beauty angel. Could they work in my tank?

I think the clowns, gramma and sixline would be fine. Just dont add them all at once and take your time.

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

You were reading igreens thread over on NR weren't you? So the thing about that is the people who have SUCCESSFULLY done this are very experienced reefers who keep pristine water quality and diligent maintenance routines. If you really consider a dwarf angel I would say a flame back or cherubs (both stay a little smaller) and ONE other fish that doesn't occupy the same swimming space as the angel, shrimp goby would be my recommendation. I personally wouldn't put an angel in anything smaller than a 40b , igreens states in the thread that those are the BARE minimum and bio loads should be planned accordingly (bigger fish = more poop)

Well I think I've decided on my 2 clowns, royal gramma, and six line wrasse for sure. What order should I add them? Should I move my clowns over first or what? Also, do you think I could sneak in a firefish or would that be pushing too far? I really like them but my wife doesn't so the gramma and wrasse tAke priority but I thought I'd ask.

I wouldn't, IMO 5 fish is to many for a 20 gallon tank
