Question Sixline Wrasse or Coral Beauty?

Hi! Im new to this forum and i reef keeping but i do have quite a bit of knowledge from research and the time to pick fish is now. So i ask: Coral Beauty? or Sixline Wrasse? For a beginner anyway. I plan to get lots of soft corals and peaceful nano fish like Gobies and clowns, any thought on this subject helps.

What size tank? I would not go smaller than 75g for any dwarf angel and angels can go after corals. (Even coral beauties ). Six lines can be model citizens or can be aggressive.

Dwarf angels really do better in larger tanks. Minimum I 'd even think of is 55g and 75g is better. They like room and can be territorial, so smaller tanks can lead to territory issues.

I have a coral beauty in my 55 reef. I'd never put one in a reef tank of mine again. Went postal on a coral and clam. A 6 line is a much better choice if you aren't planning on keeping dusters.

I've read that they should be fed vitamin enriched mysis or brine shrimp.

I had a coral beauty and a flame angel and the were perfect citizens for 4 years and they then proceeded to wreck my reef. I lost two corals and damaged several more. I had to bite the bullet and tear my tank apart to get them out. IME its not if they will but when will they. Saying that I would not put a dwarf angel in a reef. Go with the 6 line.
