Enough Space?

So i'm getting ready to do my 75 gallon reef and I was curious as to if I have enough space for the following fish.

1. Would there be enough room for perhaps a second Dwarf Angel? I was thinking something along the lines of a Flame Angel and a Pygmy Cherub. I can't seem to find any info on how much space they need to themselves.

2. I have a pair of true percula clowns (tank raised), would the 75 be enough space for a third clown? Perhaps a Clark's or Tomatoe?

I agree. Most angels need to be alone, fighting can and will ensue if you attempt to house more than one species together. Also, I see you said "75 Gallon Reef". Be cautious with your angels. Most are not 100% reef safe and will nip corals and clam mantles.

About the clown, some can do it and some cannot. I think it depends on the individual aggressiveness of your clowns. If you are sure that you have a true pair, I would say no.

All good advice...I would not do either as well. FWIW, I have never had luck with any dwarf angel species in a reef. IME, most will eventually begin to nip coals.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
