Right now I'm leaning towards some variety of butterfly fish.

Thank's for the help guys!
Well, we're all entitled to opinions. The flame angel is one of the prettiest fish around IMO. However, look at a blue spot Fiji puffer, and tell my that isn't a quality looking fish. Lol. I'm too opinionated sometimes. Whatever you get, I'm interested in pictures!

A dwarfie flame is gonna injure and harass a lion? Lol. If it did, it would either get stung and die, or be eaten. I'd be more worried about the lil flamey.

And you know first hand that this is true? Have you kept them together before?

I found that Dwarf Angels love to pic at long fins. This may either physically hurt the lion of stress him out to disease. The lion would not eat, hurt, impale, ect the angel. They don't have that type of temperament. I think it would be a hit or miss scenario really.

And you can't keep a butterfly in a 40, they usually need a 75.

I don't truly agree that the chart will help in this scenario. Because it has that middle scenario of "may get along". I think anything can be a hit or miss.

I agree, I have not been able to find any decent evidence of any pairings that will certainly work. I imagine I'll just have to forge the trail and take a risk in some direction!

I have been doing google searches, post searches, looking on other forums. It would seem dwarf lions are common, but nobody had any input in what is compatible. Again, I'm going with a hit or miss scenario.
