Looks like a Flame Angelfish, Centropyge loriculus.

Don't take the 0.1% chance and put him in freshwater.

I think it is also called a flame dwarf angelfish.

Here is another dwarf angel I love
The lemonpeel dwarf angel.

Cape Town, South Africa.

You're 100% correct: Flame Angel.

If you have both freshwater and salter aquariums, the people at the store will freak out when you buy both.

I have all the equipment for a salt water aquarium as well as a space 40 gallon breeder aquarium but has not pulled the trigger yet.

Thanks.

I like the look of that fish. Very nice looking salt water fish.

I wonder if you can keep them with corals.

Do you have a salt water tank?

Thanks.

I don't right now. Used too. If I remember right unlike most angels the can do OK in a reef but need to be watched.

That's the "hook" for SW systems. It's real easy to want something like that to the point where you just got to have that SW reef tank.

You can keep most of the SW dwarf angles with corals, or to be more specify, you have a good change of being able to do that. It all depends on the individual fish. Some never cause a problem. Others devour corals with a passion. Still others start out good and turn bad. For this reason, you always want to have a plan B just in case the fish doesn't work out.

I have a SW reef and a FW planted tank and love them both.

That's a big risk yes, considering at takes about two years to get a good living coral going in a tank.
It is nothing like the cast pieces of painted coral people see in TV shows.

This is not necessarily true. It depends on the species of coral and the conditions you keep it.

Soft corals such as colt coral or leather corals can fill a tank in a few month, especially if you frag them. Things like green star polyps or xenia can cover a huge area quickly. This can occur so quickly that some people consider these corals "weeds". Branching SPS corals can grow about 8 inches a year under ideal conditions. Brain corals and other LPS corals are the ones that can take years.

So what you do is the same thing we do in planted tanks. Use inexpensive fast growing items to get the system going and then as the slower growing items gets to size, remove some of the original fast growing items.

SW game is too expensive for me. If you ever get the chance, you have to go diving off the coast of Bazarutto Island, it is like someone went ape with flourscent markers on the fish, not to mention the shells (many of which can kill you if they stung you).
