    Who has a blue face in a reef ? Been wanting one forever but haven't had it in me to get one. Last angel I had was a juvenile blue and it nipped at everything. Since then I have been gun shy.

    Unless the tank is filled with mature sps or Euphyllia, other corals are at risk of being eaten.

    Thank you. Right now I have a mixed frag tank he would be in while setting up the new display. Might have to hold off for a while.

    Man there are some gorgeous angels in this thread. :D

    Here's an up close with flash of my P. sextriatus aka Giant Jerk #1. Thankfully, he now has a Sailfin (Giant Jerk #2) who's the same size if not a little bigger to keep him in check and an Orange Spot Rabbit (Sir Spikey) who won't isn't aggressive but won't take any crap from the Jerks to make a trio of big boys that keep to themselves and don't bother the little guys. All three are also giant weanies who disappear the second I put my hand in the tank while the dwarf angels they share the tank with stay out just watching me. I monitored this guy at the LFS for nearly 6 months before I finally grabbed him and I've had him for at least 4.5 years now. He really is a pretty fish. Would love to add another larger angel when I upgrade to my 300 here soon but I think I'll stick to just adding another one or two Centropyges.

    Anyone have captive bred angels from Poma Labs yet. They had a bunch debut at MACNA. I would love to get a Singapore Angel. Could anyone tell me if one would work out with a Coral Beauty already in the tank? Tank is year old 54G + 11G sump. I also have an Ocellaris Clown and Azure Damsel in there and might get a Melanurus Wrasse and a CB Canary Wrasse.

    I have had one for several years. Bought it as a juvenile and now is a terrific adult. It has been a model citizen. Actually is a shy fish for its size. I have to say that my tank is crowded with SPS and a few Euphyllias: A long time ago I had some zoos but my Regal Angel and the A. trimaculatus devoured them in a couple of weeks.

    So I would say that you have nothing to fear as long as your tank is a SPS one.

    I don't think that compatibility will be an issue but your tank size is too small, IMO.

    Is that a male or female personifer?

    I believe with the solid tail stripe and the blue coming in on the face, and the more elongated body that it is a male.

    New guy seems to be doing well, but a very difficult species to acclimate. I lost a goldflake in qt, so I'm still hurting from that.

    IMO, a brightly colored queen angel is as pretty as any fish out there.

    I think the black band on the tail is a sign that it’s a true personifer.

    Will Bellus angels pick at clams?
