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
