Coral beauty & Flame Angel?

Just curious.. I've done a bit of research, but cant seem to find a definate answer.

What size tank ( If any) could a coral beauty and a flame angel live together in? I've read they cant at all, and I've also read that with enough space and live rock they can.

Any input?

Thanks!

My coral was in a 90 and ran it... So if u want two, I'd say 125 or bigger. Idk if I would test it though. Both fish are beautiful though.

I would also say 125g for both. They will not run into eachother to much.

I would say bigger then 125. My coral beauty was a terrorizer it would hover over the anenome and wait for clowns to come out to fight

Interesting.. thanks for the input! If I ever upgrade again I'll look into getting one. I kind of figured i'd be pushing it in a 75, its ashame, I love 'em! I'll have to look into what else I may be able to get.

Good to have input from experience

Thanks!

They are certainly beautiful fish! If you upgrade, it will help with aggression if you add them both at the same time.

My experience has been that the two will not mix well. I was told by my Lfs that, if introduced at the same time, they would be able to coexist. The flame angel was dead two weeks later and the coral beauty still rules the tank. I think that their personalities are what dictate them being able to live with each other. JMO.
