If you get a flame angel i would reccomend:
1. you add the fish tom the tank after the tank has been running for 6 to 8 months with live rock because they will not thrive in a tank that does not offer proper grazing oppurtunities and they will perish in a tank that does not have the nitrates, nitrites, and ammonia under control.
2. you have at least a 30 gallon tank with weekly water changes in less frequent amounts. flame angelfish require a stable enviroment because they are sensitive to changes in salinity, temprature, and ph. because they are sensitive to these changes, it is essential that you change less because i heard people who have their angelfish go into PH shock.
3. you do not overstock. i am soon moving up to a 55 gallon as soon as my fish grow older. when they get older, they need to have enough room to spread aggression. this angelfish gets more aggressive as it gets older. somnetimes they jump out of the tank because there is not enough oxegyn in the water
4. get an R/O unit. tap water can contain the metal copper. flame angelfish specificly are sensitive to anywhere near 0.15 PPM of copper.

their are some pros and cons
pros: very beutiful, intellegent, personalities, easy to feed ,and relitively hardy
cons: sensitive to copper, requires more mantinance, needs specialised died of algea, prone to ICK

great fish! adds awesome color to your tank! they’re always swimming around..darting between rocks. they eat pretty much anything you put into the tank.

I love this fish. It gets along great with my other fish and does not touch my corals! I love it.
