I have lemon peel and adult majestic angel in my 125g. I want emperor and flame angel in there... would they get along? I also have tangs, clowns, foxface and a puffer.

In as humble a way as possible... your tank is overstocked as it is, especially as your fish grow to adult size.

An emperor needs at least 2-3x your tank size to live a happy and healthy life.

A flame angel would be very risky (not considering bioload) b/c smaller angels tend to fight with each other in smallish spaces.

yea.. it is kind of crowded. i see people keep all these large angels and want to try it out. I'm getting rid of some fish like puffer and foxface to make some room for an Emperor. thinking about getting a juvi emperor and let it grow. ofcourse, after getting rid of some fish.

I feel like you can get away with the flame angel only because the body type isn't as similar and the coloration is different. Just make sure you aquascape with a ton of caves for it to hide.

I got a flame angel on Sunday, and it is still hiding. I know it's alife since I caught a peek at it through the rocks. I see no other fish troubling it.

My question is: How long will it continue to hide?

Flame Angel

How about a Flame angel in a 24 gallon Aquapod that has some gobies and a spotted cardinal.

The tank size is ok, but I don't think you should add any other fish.

The bigger issue would be what corals are in there that a Flame might decide to nosh on :(
Well, it is basically LPS. But if you keep them well fed ....

Mine didn't eat the corals and was very well fed, but you know Sam, it's always a toss up on whether the fish will listen to us or if they think corals are like candy.. I hope you score a model reef citizen ;)
