depends on what else is in the tank. If you have no sps corals or brains, I would say most of the centropyge angels would do well

I have a Coral Beauty and a Flame in my 75 reef, no problems whatsoever.

Most angels are hit or miss in a reef setup. If i would have to pick the angel with the greatest reef compatability i would say the flame, cherub, bicolor, or coral beauty angel. Notice that these are dwarf angels, which have greater compatibility in a reef, but like before, hit or miss.

A C. argi (Cherub) or its Flameback sister species are good ( with the usual occasional exceptions..
A small Genicanthus but it will probably outgrow that size tank.

I have C. joculator and C. multicolor. Both do well. The former is a no nonsense angel.
Warmest regards,

Almost any Genicanthus is reef safe by default being planktivores.
When in doubt ride a bike.
