Show fish??

I have built a 70 gallon tank, right now it is cycling but I'm trying to think about what I'm going to put in it. I was wondering what big flashy fish would work. Like a Tang or angel fish. Any suggestions?

Not as colorful as most tangs, but one heck of a personality. He is a little rough on my lawnmower blenny. I think because they hunt the same algae but the little blenny just keeps comming right back out not too intimidated..

Why not go for a school of smaller fish? Sometimes that's more impressive than one flashy fish

I like dwarf angels...Flame and Coral Beauties look great. I just picked up an Eibli/Red Stripe Angel. They also had Multicolor Angels there, which looked great. Most angels outside of dwarfs won't work in a 70.

Ya IM not real picky on what kind of fish! Just as long as they are colorful! Are the dwarf angel fish very aggressive?

Most are peaceful. Check out sites like liveaquaria.com for info on them and other fish. They also have tank size suggestions and things like compatibility charts that are useful. I also like vividaquarium and bluezoo.

A rusty,multicolor or lemon peel are all good dwarfs IMO...
All angels can be a bit on the aggressive side ...i would add it last

It may depend a bit on which dwarf you want but as far as I know a 70 should be able to house 2.. what are the tank dimensions on it
