Coral Beauty's in Nano tanks debate

So, I have a 28gal fishtanks just cycling to saltwater. I recently wanted to get a coral beauty once the tank has been up and running for 3-5 months. I asked on my YouTube channel if CB (Coral beauty's) would be a good choice. I had a HUGE discussion on my comments section of other fish channels battling for this debate. I decided to bring it here to forms to help people with 25+ nano tanks to know. "Should they out a CB in here or nah." So, give all facts and opinions you can possible.

Or any dwarf angelfish

A coral beauty is one of two dwarf angels that can go in a 'smaller tank'. The other being a flame angel. They have no business in a tank under 30 gallons. They are very active swimmers and need room of a 4ft long tank. I have one in my 55 reef and in all honesty, I'd give it up in a minute...but not for any reason regarding tank size.

I have a potters in my 40 breeder. I agree with hank though. While dwarf angels are rock dwellers they still like that open space to spread their fins. I wouldn't do one in a tank less than 36" long. The more room the better

40g breeder would be the smallest IMO , I had a flame angel in my 37 bow front but the foot print was a little tight as the 40g breeder has a much bigger foot print with more swimming room making it the better choice

The more swimming is the better, but the min would be a 40b. I wouldn't feel comfortable putting it in anything with less length

Ya I mean my list is
2 clowns
1 CB
1 Six-Line Wrasse
I've heard there angles in a 29gal or Devils it all depends. I think Churb to would work instead of a CB. But, I mean if I put less fish in the tank I bet I could have one? If not... Oh well.

I feel any dwarf Angel in a 29g tank is a death sentence , that's like locking yourself up in a coat closet . a flame hawk would fair better in that tank , just don't over crowd it with rock , dwarfs also stress easier and small tanks don't give many places to hide

Thanks I like your anologly like being stuck in a closet. I'll think twice on getting a dwarf next time. Long nosed hawk fish would be amazing to have in the wrasse family!
