Your LFS is trying to make a sell... Angels are aggressive and so are clowns, your going to have issues in a small tank like that. I'm not trying to rain on your parade, just offering you some friendly advice.

Ya I agree with kio. I told my friend not to do it in a 25 and he did. And the angel ended killing his two clowns. Personally I think they shouldnt be in anything smaller than a 55 but that's just me

Coral beauty if I was to have any corals or anemones at all. Lemon peels like to peck. My coral beauty is over 10 years old and the best behaved angel fish I have.

Neither in a 20g, regardless of what your LFS said.

I`m not going to answer either. They dont belong in a 20 gallon tank and will experience health problems because of it. You might want to find another LFS.

The tank is 30 in long. I plan on getting a few minimal lighting corals and anems. Btw Carey said I could get the angel.

Minimal light and nems don't mix. Also angels can nip corals.

It'll nip ur corals. Just watch out for that... If you decide to get it, it's your tank. I can't control what you decide to put in it. I wish you all the success and good luck with it. Like I said, all my advice is just what I've researched and my opinion on it.

No, dwarf angels are all about the same size.

How many times did i tell you an angel wasn't right for that tank? LOL

You can squeeze one in but it doesn't make it right. :-(

There's soo many options for a 20g, especially a long tank. I know you want a tang badly and I'm glad you're not putting one in.

I would like to put a small flame angel in my 29 but won't do it until I am sure I will upgrade to a 90 or 100 gal. I am picking up a jewel damsel tomorrow but one more fish to total 4 in this tank is about it.
