    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??

    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.

    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?
