    Hi all,

    Wondering what your favorite Centropyge angels are. Looking to include a pair of Centropyge in an 8' tank.

    Thanks
    Drew

    Flame, lemon peel, or coral beauty. If I wasn't so worried about coral nipping I would have all 3.

    I enjoy my flameback, but Potter's would have been my first choice.

    Potters, and not necessarily centropyge but paracentropyge: venustus and multibar would be my top 3 dwarf angels

    Love my Half-black Centropyge vroliki. If I could add another it would be a Coral beauty or an Eibli, they are so cute.

    Thanks everyone for the replies. I was surprised to see it dominated by the more popular fish like coral beauties, flames, and lemonpeels - and not some rarer, higher-end fish like Interruptus or Joculators.

    Definitely going to need something erring more towards reef-safe.
    Tankmates will be a regal angel, a trio of Genicanthus, a bunch (25+) wrasses, and probably 2-3 tangs and maybe a few other smaller fish.

    I think I've narrowed it down to a true Shepardi pair or a coral beauty pair.
