Ahhhhh, don't know much about saltwater sorry. but like any fish I think you need to know what kind of angel you want and then research it's needs.

ok thank you. think i've changed my mind on angel fish..not really sure since i've always wanted one. i've seen the fish that can be tank mates with them, so i might get those first then angels

I did a little research and even the Dwarf Angels can get rather large so that maybe all you can put in the 55 Gal. Check it out before you buy tankmates so you still have room for the star attraction(the angel)

if you want angels there are good angels that can go in a tank that size...

Coral beauties and Flame angelfish are both fairly popular and can live in tanks smaler than 55 gallon... my brother had a flame angel as a kid. dont go for any of the larger ones like Emperors, French Angels, or Korans... they get too big
