Honestly not sure I would attempt an angel anyway. I have a very hard time keeping them alive. As in I haven't been successful at it yet.

Seems that I have very bad luck with angels also. Lol. I want to say, if you want a reef, start out with ALL of the right equipment before hand. It will save you alot of $$$ down the road. Also, I am following along.
Ps. I live the color of your lights.

I have noticed a lot of people have issues with Angels. A really good reef angel is the wanatabe. In fact- you could have a whole school of them. No joke!

Seriously? I will have to look into those. My apprehension stems from the fact that I have lost 8 angles (large and dwarf combined). In all fairness, my first Emperor might still be alive if he left my Volitan alone and didn't get stung.

Abugg, thanks for the advice. The LFS that I used for this was big on quoting all the best equipment (which I purchased). I certainly don't want the setup to be the deciding factor on success or failure. BTW, both my wife and I are in love with green bubble coral .

Cycle going well. I checked levels on Wed and got 0, 0, and <5. The lfs wanted to test on Thurs and checked ammonia and nitrite. They got 0.2 and 0.1. I trust my results but am going to play it safe and recheck next week. Had a diatom outbreak today. Definitely getting close.
