Hello - could you share your experiences with these angels? I have a new 220 and I'm considering one of these large angels but I can't quite decide on which one. ' any thoughts/info on which one you have, your set-up, tank-mates, observations etc would be helpful. Thanks in advance

Tank looks great!..Love the stand/canopy

Personally i love the annularis,i also really like the asfur and blue lines ...Emps and queens are just seen too much..Thats the popular choices,,definitely beautiful just a lot of em I think..
The queens can be nasty ,,but all large angels tend to be ..

you could always just get a Conspicuous

I currently have a french,also popular but i need my Steeler fish and before that had a koran(lost in a power outage)..

EDIT: Also assuming this will be a fish only system ?? Large angels and reefs don't mix at all..
I have tried numerous things and can only keep shrooms and rics..But i'm just fine with that
Tankmates should be able to hold their own,,tangs,triggers,puffers,wrasses,hawks all obvious not invert safe but angel safe
I like getting juvis to watch the color morphs ,,its awesome and kinda like having 2 fish for the price of one

For me it would either be between the Annularis or the Queen. They are both very nice!

Yep,,he doesn't even give them a test picking..
My koran did try a pick here and there but never went into a full munching on them,,duncans,leathers,hammers,frogspawn,xenia,tru mpets,zoas,and colt coral is another story,,He destroyed all of them..

DD has a beautiful annularis right now,scoop it up .I always check DD ,,i got a lot of fish off there,just got another angler from there

I saw that one on DD as well; it seems like a really good deal
Sorry to keep asking you questions but do you have hermits/snails? Im curious if the big angels pick on them
Thanks again

NO problem,,,TBH i never had inverts in with my angels because i always kept triggers with them...I honestly don't think they would bother any inverts ..They are not considered reef safe because of coral nipping/eating and triggers are not reef safe because of invert eating ..I think you'll be fine to keep any inverts you want..

Only reason i would pass on the DD deal is because its an adult..but thats just my personal preference..

' kinda funny - I just visited a LFS and they had all 3! An adult Emperor, 2 Queens and a very large adult Annularis! If my tank was a little more established; Id have gotten one - but I still need to wait a bit I think

Man,it must be nice to have a good LFS that gets in awesome fish..I miss mine(family place ,closed after 30+),,all i have now is a mall pet store and pet-co...Thats why i order online now..Good idea to wait though,they do need great water quality and established systems ...
