Flame Angels are rather aggressive for their size, but it depends on what you mean by predator, because many true predators will consider the Flame Angel to be snack size.

also, back to placing two angels in a small tank, I was considering placing a flame angel and a singapore angel in the same tank, since the singapore isn't a centropyge.

I agree on the ASM series of skimmers, also look at euroreef.

Sometimes there's justice, sometimes there's just us!

probably nothing bigger then 6 or 7 inchs. if you can recall i own a 65 gallon and want a dwarf lion.(other then that its just gonna be maybe large maroons, or small types of tangs. or MAYBE one very small and mellow trigger, or puffer)

Honestly, I do not like most of the plans you are making on these fish selections. At best you are pushing your luck.

Mixing a predator such as a Dwarf Lion in a small aquarium with a Flame Angel is a stress factor for the Flame. There is just no reason to intentionally cause stress to marine aquarium fish. A Singapore Angel is an extremely difficult species, and needs more room to thrive than you can offer. There is no such thing as a "mellow" Trigger fish, especially in this tank size. And finally, the only Puffers which would have adequate space are the Toby puffers, so hopefully this is what you have in mind.

Sorry, I can't support these ideas when long term success is considered.

yeah, i've actually been kinda thinking it would be better off if i just wen't with a community tank and maybe go into inverts depending on my success with hardier community fish. as much as i want a lion i just don't like my odds in that size tank. also, if i have more smaller compatable fish, like gobies, clowns, cardnals, ect. i can then have room for a cleaning crew of snails and small crabs and such. anyway sorry about being a hijacker, carry on
