Gorgeous fish! What type?
Here’s my African Flameback, sorry that the pictures are so bad. He’s really skiddish
And when they grow up...
What do you guys think the minimum tank size for an Emperor Angelfish is? Aggression level? Reef safe??
To be honest, I feel so stupid asking all of these questions and I could probably just look them up on Google, but 4 million results for 1 search isn't that helpful.... and they all tell you a different thing too.... so, I'm just wondering and would like your input.
Had one in my in last reef had him since juvenile did not bother my corals gets aggressive as it gets older I would say they don’t like being bothered by other fish. Smallest tank size they say is a 125. Don’t send the fuzz had mine in a 75g.
Thank you so much!! I have a 120, haven't even started setting it up yet. Is it aggressive towards invertebrates?? And when it's older, just how aggressive does it get??
Never bothered my inverts at all the one I had the aggression was more of a stay away from me type of thing never was going after others.
Thank you so much! I appreciate the help!!
Happy that I can help.
I don't think a 120 gallons will hold an Emperor Angel for a long time, I have one in my 180 gallon and IMO this the minimum for Emperor Angel.
Mine didn't bother invert and most of the corals, except some coral like acans and zoas.
The fish in the very last picture, on the top left, what kind of fish is that?? SOOOOO beautiful!!!!
Blue face angel.
Agree. Blue face are a cryptic angel but beautiful!
Blue face angel had it 7yrs
When I get a second, i'll take a picture of my true Red Sea Regal. He's an adult and a misbar!
Any info or experience with africanus angel in a fish only system would be great.. Trying to get a 4 inch one...
I have a Regal angel in qt since a week now but I still haven't seen it eat.... The qt is around 200l (around 54 gallon), besides the Regal there is 5 G Loreto and 1 A Occelaris wich all eats.
The Regal looks healthy and is not skinny, but is shy, when the door to the room opens it swims behind a rock bit when left in peace it swims around the tank.
I did a fw-dip when it arrived and is now on day 5 with prazipro(wich i know can supress apitite).
It shows some interest in brine-shrimp(frozen) and ON Reef flakes, not like it tastes or swims after but it's interested...
Have tried frozen brine-shimp, mysis, fresh clams, regular shrimp, Ocean Nutrition formula 1 and 2 pellets, Dr Bassler pellets, Ocean Nutrition Reef flakes...
Any tips on how to get it feeding?
Located in Sweden so the range and brands of avalible foods differ some from America...
I have Easy Reef Masstick incoming
On thing I have been thinking about is temperatur, the qt now holds around 26 degreess( 79 fahrenheit), since it's yellow-belly it's from the red sea or Indo-pacific? Should I raise the temp, Red sea is usually pretty warm if I remember correct?
