Even a school of Chromis looks good as well. Get about 4-5 of them and they will be fun to watch. You can go to liveaquaria.com and look at the fish selection with the recommended tank sizes for each one. There is a bunch out there that will work with what you have.

So for those of us with small tanks, what WOULD you recommend? I was looking at some butterflies the other day. very pretty fish, just as pretty as Angels In my opinion. are they good for smaller tanks?
Clownfish (all but maroon)
Royal Gramma
Various Gobies (beware sand sifters if using sandbeds)
Damsels (yellowtail, or other more "docile" varieties)
Pygmy Angels
Some Wrasses
Various Blennies
Leaf Fish
Valentini Puffer

TONS! Obviously some of the above are not the best for very small tanks....but some research should show the best options out of the huge pool of choices.

Thanks everyone

...for all your feedback. I'll wait on the angels some more, since my other fish seem to be doing well right now. It doesn't look like adding one more small fish would overcrowd my tank (all my fish are getting along right now, but as mentioned, I'm sure that could change once they begin to grow).

As for my UG, I've used it in the past when my tank was first set up, and though it may be primitive, it has worked well for me. I guess I've been lucky

Thanks again!!!
