I would be worried angels would tear the ABF up instead. Those long, dangling fins may be too much to resist nipping at, especially if you have a breeding pair. Mine has shown no aggression towards tank mates, but it depends on the personality. ABF usually won't take a bite of another fish unless they plan on eating it.

As far as the angels and the ABF, I have talked extensively with the people at my lfs (they've all known me by name since they opened), and they've assured me if I see any sign of aggression from any of the fish they will take it back and give me store credit. So, I've decided I'm going to do it and closely monitor them.

It sounds like you have an awesome fish store. Be extra alert when/if they pair up.

I spend most of my time watching my fish tanks, it's an obsession. Also, the only lfs within 30 miles of me is a box store (petco) but they have some GREAT people in there fish department. It probably helps that the store manager is an aquarium enthusiast. They actually ordered the reedfish and the ABF specifically for me several months ago.
