I've read that the Flame angel is a semi-aggressive usually territorial fish. IME adding the aggressive fish last is usually best because the other fish have a change to establish their territories first. When the aggressive fish comes in, you won't have to worry too much about them being picked on, and since they are new to the environment, they have less chance to pick on other fish.

Thanks man, Awesome explanation, now I understand why they said he should go in last, before i was confused as to why. I will tell the boss we will get him but he will have to be one of the last fish to go in. Thanks again Speakerman.

Thank you as well for the explanation Speakerman. It really does help like Inferno said. They are such amazing looking fish though! You make complete sense, so thanks so much for the advice.

I only feed every other day. Maybe if I fed alot then he might not munch on them but then I`d have to deal with excessive nutrients and algea in the tank. IMO you cant change nature. If they are going to nip corals then they are. But you never know. Mine went 4 yrs even with every other day feedings before they went bad. The choice is up to you.

I guess it's something to chew on. Thanks again.

They eat coral?!?! that sucks it was the next fish on my list to get for my 55gal i have always wanted one oh well

Melosu; yours went bad! Maybe it was the parenting!!!!! (think of time out)
What have you done with him, do you still love him and keep an eye on what corals go into your tank. Or has he been let go?

It was two of them (dwarf angels) and they are in a 240 gallon FOWLR tank somewhere in the state. I`ve taken the "NO ANGELS" pledge. LOL

Inferno, As I have said I hear yes and know; I am going to take the chance. Melosu in 4 years I may also take the pledge. But I do hope not!!!!!

Inferno, come join me in 4 years lets not take it just yet. They are magnificent fish!
