one more fish

I have a 29 gal tank with a yellow watchman goby, a oscellas clown, and a Carmel clown, some xenia a purple mushroom and some astrea snails and like 5 hermit crabs. I would like one more fish would really like a flame angel but not sure on tank size. Any suggestions on the flame or another good fish. Thanks

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

Do you want a 'swimmy" fish or one that perches or a bottom dweller?

all the flame angels i have kept were fine in a reef setting. that said, i have never kept one in a tank that small. i would be concerned about aggression and the size of the fish full grown.

+1

Try going with a reef safe flasher or fairy wrasse. They have tons of color and are swimmers, you just have to make a cover for your tank if its not covered as they do like to jump from time to time.

If you want a fish thats a little bigger then a firefish, and likes to swim i would reccomend a wrasse or some type of cardinal fish. Orange spotted cardinal or bangaai cardinal are two great fish!
