Flame Angel compatability question

I am currently about 6 weeks into a new 75 gallon saltwater tank with the following tank mates (all small):

1 Oscellaris Clown
1 Blue Hippo Tang
1 Auriga Butterfly

Seem to get along fine, but would really like to add a Flame Angel in the near future. Should I have any reason to believe that this would be a problem?

Thanks in advance.

Kevin

I would swap out the blue tang for the flame angel. Tangs require a 6 foot long tank for swimming AND cause they get big. That blue tang is gonna get HUGE! LOL

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

I won't suggest a tang...unless you are planning up upgrading to a huge tank...the flame angel are a cute fish to add and their bright colours is an add bonus ^^

What part of MD do you live in?

Flames can be aggressive, especially to new additions.
