It all depends on what you're willing to invest in your tank time wise. Some people with the HUGE tanks spend an hour daily maintaining them. Not to mention the cost of maintaining large tanks.

Time is not a problem! Work 5 days 9 hours but the money a large tank costs is phenomenal

Another fish to consider would be the fire fish their optimal tank size is 10 gallons,they are peaceful and would get along with your clowns.I am going for a pair of purple fire fish because they are purple and will be very happy in my 45g.

Okay sometimes research can make your head explode because there is advice and research that is contradictory.yes Live Aquaria recommends at least 70g for a flame angel but another aquarium site I trust said 60g and this site said a minimum of 30g.So maybe someone on the site that has successful housed a flame angel would be a better authority on whether or not you could get the Flame Angel and if they say yes then I may be changing my stocking plan because, like you, flame angels are one of my absolute favorites.

It's common for sites to have completely contradicting information for stocking levels in tanks. But keep in mind that anyone can type in a "recommended" tank size for a fish. Due to angels being territorial and somewhat aggressive fish I wouldn't try anything less than a 4ft long tank which is a 55g. Live aquaria is pretty much the authority on stocking fish so it's safe to take their stocking suggestions to heart although sometimes they can give suggestions that are a little high.

Terrible news guys!

Just had a really really good stare at the clowns and I'm sure this one has white spot...

Next course of action please?

It's my first fish and only had it several hours... Shall I take it back to the LFS? Or is there a method or getting rid of it
