Flameback Angelfish
I am curious to know if the Flameback Angelfish would be okay to be kept in an AP12..I believe that it'd be too small, but I was just wondering. The only other fish would be a small Yashia goby

I'm reading that they stay relatively small (3 inches) yet 30 gallons is recommended (which you probably already know). I'm keeping a flame angel (little larger and also recommended 30g) in my 24 gallon and that's pushing it.

I wouldn't put any angel in a 12g though.

i plan to add a cherub angel in my 20 long, but i wouldnt put any other larger species in anything less than a 20. i think the cherub is one of the smallest if not the smallest of the dwarfs.

yeah..I've seen how they stay small and it really intrigues me, but I wouldn't want to make it's life miserable

I had to break down my tank this week because of my flameback. started nipping at my leather. oh and he was the meanest SOB you could ever imagine, just like the cherub i had a while back. just a word of caution
