Great looking angelfish, I always live the large angelfish, just don’t have the large tank.
I raised all of them from juvenile so i can see them change

That’s cool, I am looking for small majestic also, seems this one is the least prone to nip LPS and SPS
Its a shy fish therefore they hide more than swimming around so less pickings

From hardiness perspective, from ur experience, which one is hardier, goldflake or majestic angelfish?
i only can choose 1 fish, between goldflake and majestic. My tank already have yellow tang, so I already have yellow fish, and I don’t have blue color fish.
thanks much

Majesty is a shy fish , gold flake will be more visible however if u only have 1 angel then majestic is fine since they are no other angel bully it.

Oh man, I was wondering what happened to your stag tank. Sorry to hear that it crashed because of a power outage. I loved seeing those stags grown out, it provides great structure. Looking forward to seeing the angel tank. I'm surprised you didn't just keep your old tank and use it for the angel tank.

Hello there
For those of you who knew me before welcome back. For the new folks my name is Anthony from Irvine ca. My old tank was a 360g peninsula staghorn dominated reef tank.
During the pandemic i have an power outage and the tank crashed. I was able to sell and give away most of my sps and only keeping fish only for 2 years from 2020-2021.
But once a reefer always a reefer so I restarted the tank in the beginning of Jan 2022.
The new tank is quite different. Its no longer peninsula but a traditional front to back set up. Now i can really appreciate the 36” deep.
Tank is aquascape with reef rock branch and arch. And for the light i went with 4x neptune sky and 6x kessil 360x.
Since its an angel dominated reef tank i need heavy export to control nutrients produce by 10 angels and 10 tangs.
Zeovit dosing, algae scrubber and large skimmer taking care of the bio load. I also set up 1g wc everyday to keep up with trace elements. Instead of ca reactor im running a kalk reactor for high ph and keeping the alkalinity stable.
For now there’s only frags in the tank so the alk uptake is minimal no needs to run ca reactor. Below is the list of equipment
AQUARIUM
96”x36”x24” 360g AA acrylic tank
LIGHTING
4x neptune sky
6x kessil 360x

FLOW
2x mp60
5x jebao sow 20
1 tunze wave box
1 tunze 6085

SKIMMER
vertex a300

ALGAE REACTOR
Clear water c300

RETURN PUMP
Red dragon

CONTROLLER
Hydros, Apex and GHL

SUMP
Custom sump by AA

CA REACTOR
Dual chamber reef octopus, Alan Lee custom regulator and masterflex pump.

FRAGS TANK
2x 100g shallow tank. One run with T5. One run with led.

Well that’s for now more will come

The new

The old
Looking very nice, beautiful angels and nice fish selection.

I have read from the best angelfish keepers that there is nothing better than raising some of these fish from juveniles and seeing them become adults, a great and fun task.

So I just started a 210g XXL750 softy tank with angels. A couple of questions if you don’t mind? I have a 3-4” passar (king) a changling emperor 3”, blue Koran maybe 2.5” and a 2-3” xanthrus. I put them all in to the tank from QT at the same time and haven’t had any aggression issues. I purchased a Queen and a French received on 8/30 and they are about ready to come out of QT. They came in much bigger than I ordered, the Queen is probably 7” and the French about 6”. Do you think they will be too aggressive to add to the angels I currently have in the tank?

Angel aggression is much less than tang. Since the bigger one add in last they wont be the boss right away however your tank size housing 6 potential large angels is at the limits. The smaller the tank the more aggressive the fish because they want their territory

I’ve been wanting to do an emperor and 3 regals but have been concerned about them nipping. Do you have any clams? That’s another concern I’ve had adding large angels.
No clam and meaty corals. Best is to raise them from juvenile stage so they dont have a taste for corals. Nori clip is a must so they will be busy nipping at algae.

Thanks. I do plan to upsize at some point. Have 5 tanks currently. Planning a custom for the angels as they grow. Going to try to determine what dimensions I want and can get into my basement. Then plan what might be my last build.

Does your Queen eat nori? The French is eating like crazy but the Queen ignores it.

I am sooooo tempted to add angelfish to my SPS dominant tank. I have two dwarf angelfish (flame and lemon peel) are waiting in another tank for quite some time but I am really scared to transfer them. I need to fix the auto feeder and I will be follow your feeding routine.

Nice tank and fish collection you have there

Haha but if your tank is mature and your corals are big enough no damage done
They never bother my corals. I have jept Centropygi Ari and Acanthrops over many years never had any such issues.

My love for angel fish is always strong. Even with my old tank with full sps i still have quite a few. Flame and lemon peel are not bad because they can eat variety of food. But the pigmy and flameback are way worse
 

What is the best SPS starter coral?
