    I don't think the larger angel will harass the inverts, they will destroy corals though. If you do get a dwarf angel, I'd suggest the flame angel, they are so beautiful.

    i would hold off until you get the larger tank, your tank is very full as is.

    I kinda don't think you can have two angels in the same tank but I don't know for sure.

    You can try it in a 125, but dont be surprised if it doesnt work out. If you add them at the same time, the odds are better for them getting along

    Well if he is big then maybe. I know in my tank my angel is the dominate fish, but if the tang has him beat in size then ya might have problems

    i wouldnt put 2 angels in anything under 200 gallons. they can get very aggressive. also im going to have to disagree on the stocking of the tank. you have 3 tangs in your tank and all of them are rated at 125 gallons at least full sized. and your tank is 125 gallons for all three of them including your other fish. and the angel your planning on adding.

    Jeez, and I thought little_fish was the ultimate fish police.

    Flame angels can be hit or miss and pick at zoos and other corals. With coral I'd go with a coral beauty since they are typically reef safe and very colorful.

    He said he's upgrading.

    And even if you count all the tangs as two fish, it only adds up to 9. He could have 12 to 14.
