    So I have a biocube 32 and currently have 2 clowns, 1 peppermint shrimp and a good size CUC. I want to add a flame angel and maybe 2 more fish but for sure 1. Could I have a Pygmy angel with a flame angel in a 32 or would they not get along? Other than that what would be some good fish to add to my tank. I like fish with fun personalities and colors.

    A flame angel is too big and active for a 32g tank. A pygmy angel would work. However, a pygmy angel and a pr of clowns is a lot of territoriality for such a small tank.

    Coral beauty is too big and too active for 32g. Only one angel in that size tank.

    Yeah sorry I wasn’t clear. You said flame angel was too big and active. Would a coral beauty be okay in it as the only angel in the tank?

    Both the flame and coral beauty are too big for that tank, even if each were the only angel in it.

    Okay I guess I was confused because you said only one angel in that size tank.

    Yes, a pygmy angel is the only appropriate sized angel for that tank.
