I have a coral beauty in my 29 gallon. He has been doing great for almost a year now. I like the idea of a bigger tank for them but mine seems very happy so I am not concerned. He gets along great with my midas blenny and clowns. I think they may be listed as needing bigger tanks cot compatibility concerns with other fish that sleep in the rock work. Just my opinion, I think this is why I lost my wrasse. I wouldn't recommend a wrasse and coral beauty in a small tank.

Flame angels are less reef safe than coral beauties..its a hit or a miss with them. But sounds good besides that!

Your tank is too small for dwarf angels.

+1 on this, i have a flame angel in my 37g reef (i got lucky and he is reef safe) and he fights my clowns all the time, he will be moved to my 60g cube though but for a 29 you cant fit any angels in there. For center piece how about midas blenny? A pair of clowns, a show piece fish, a goby (the smaller watchmans are hardy and nice looking) and some invertabrates? That would keep it safe and simple

Id say 1 more small fish within 3 inches would work, go to live aquaria and take a look around, what ever you see there is what your lfs is gonna have. Heres a link to fish that would fit your tank and are easy to care for, also not aggresive- http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/a...t=1&page_num=1

That would work, any invertabrates you wanted other than the 2 shrimp?
