    I have a Flame Angel. I can tell you they need a well established tank as they love to graze on the algae off the live rock. I wouldnt put one in a tank that was set up for less than 8 months or so.

    If you would like them in a community tank they should be the last ones added. I have mine with 2 clowns, a purple firefish, and a goby.

    While they can be fairly hardy flame angels suffer from what I call SADS (Sudden Angel Death Syndrome) and can die suddenly with no warning or real cause. For that reason I purchased my second one from someone who had it in a established tank for a while.
