IMO, angels are best kept in FOWLR. Although there r suggestions 2 keep them while they're juvenile, however, once they start nipping at those beautiful sps n lps in our reef tank, we got to remove them. its not easy to catch fishes once they r in the tank.

CHEEERS!

have you considered an angel of the genus Genicanthus? they get moderatly big (around 7") and are COMPLETELY reef safe.

check them out at Wet Web Media

i recently bought one, and she is a beauty. always on the move in and out of rocks. she's hard to get a good picture of though.

here's my best efforts

i have been thinking about this some more, and would they be okay if i got it when juvenile and then get it feeding so used to normal food when growing up, so wont be so tempted by my corals.

do you think a juvenile would be okay for a year in my 100 gal, then go into a 200 gal tank but around a 300 - 400 gal system?

A juvenile would be OK in a 100 gallon. I have a 5" Maculosus (Map Angel) in a 210. I'll have to see how big she gets, I may upgrade someday to a larger tank. (ya right, gotta get that one past the wife).
I'm getting ready to try a few mushroom corals, I'll let you know how it turns out.

If it doesn't work, the corals will go. I value my fish much more that any coral. It may come down to that choice with anyone wanting a large angel in a reef tank.
Good luck!! There are always exceptions to every rule!

pomme...let me sum this up for you
angels eat corals
all the time. 24 hours a day 7 days a week 365 days a year. there are virtually no exceptions. if you want angelfish, you cant have corals. well, live corals anyhow!
