What kind of tank is this going to be? If it were a reef tank, the coral beauty is the only one that I would try as it is the least likely of all the dwarf angels to go postal on coral. That said, they can go years without issues and then go postal. I have one in my reef tank and would give it up in a heartbeat as it decided to go postal on my clam one day as I was trying to solve another issue with it and it pushed things over the top causing its death.

I would like to have some coral and eventually an anemone or two. The coral beauty is in my top 3.

I had some leather coral two clownfish a blue hippo tang couple starfish snails and crabs and everyone did just fine. It all comes down to tank mates and what you really want. Those three choices are all great fish!

I have a coral beauty in my mixed reef for a year with no problems. I feed frozen "Angel mix" food sometimes that has some sponge which angelfish are supposed to like, but it'll eat pretty much anything. She doesn't bother my clams or corals so far.

If you are able to be patient and shop around with multiple lfs, the coral beauty would be my choice.
This is due to there being different color variations depending on where they are harvested from and other factors. You can get them in a range from more blue to almost all yellow. Pretty incredible.
