    Hey guys,

    So just got a flame angel the other day knowing full well I already have a coral beauty and this could end bad BUTTTT I kept the flame angel in an acclimation box for a few days first...

    I noticed that the CB couldnt care less about the flame so 2 days later I let the flame out... The CB chased it around for an hour or so (probably just trying to sort out the pecking order) , I turned off the lights and the next day everyone seems happy...

    Heres a quick video of everyone at feeding time... ignore the algae... I'm working on it, just ordered a dual reactor for some GFO and Carbon which should help things a bit!

    Heres the Video

    I have to admit NY that they seem to get along. What size is your tank?

    Mine got along just fine, didn't bother each other. But my flame angel was a fungia nipper, so he had to go.

    Goes to show that fish have different personalities. Kudos for going outside the box of what's "supposed" to go in the tank.

    Every fish is different. Heck I have a six line that's probably the nicest fish I have ever owned LOL.

    edit: GO G-MEN!!!! Why we picked up Freeman is beyond me though!

    Thanks guys... The 2 dwarf angels seem to be doing better and better... seems like as the days go on they start caring less and less about each other which makes me super happy!!
