Minimum Tank Size?

Hi,
I can't seem to find a minimum tank size for an Angel (hopefully Royal) mixed with two Clowns and room for at least six to ten corals?

-Thanks

Welcome to AA glad you found us here .. the two clowns would need a 20+ gallon tank. As for the angel it will vary greatly depending on which you choose. Especially when talking about the difference between a regular angel and a dwarf angel. Either way though angels are known to eat/nip corals so most are not added to reefs but some dwarfs are hit or miss. Try going to liveaquaria.com and browse their angels which will have tank requirements and everything else included with each one.

Thanks! I was thinking of getting a 30g if I could - so I may just wait on my angel when I decide to go for a fish only SW tank.

If its a Royal Blue Pygmy Angel, then something 40-55 would be good. I've never actually seen one of these. Cherub and Flamebacks, but never a Royal Blue. Some places might quote smaller, but when fully grown, it will appreciate having a little more room. Bigger will help keep things stable for a reef tank. Just remember that angels are known to nip at corals...not guaranteed, you never know until you get yours and see.
