Hey guys, I know a 29 gallon is a little small for a Flame/ Coral Beauty Angel, but all the sources I've read say 29-30 gallons, even your profiles. If I wanted one of those, what could go with it?

Sure you could. They may pick at corals, if you had any plans on having any. But yea, your good with that fish. No one is going to give you crap about a one gallon difference.

Yes, I figured 1 gallon didn't really matter very much. According to Pasfur's stocking thread, I could have 1 of those, and still be able to get the Orchid Dottyback and a Goby. Hrmm, and now I like Green Chromis. Geez, this really opens up my options :D

Your list is sound. But, only get one Chromis. They look neat, but they are not going to school in your tank, or any other for that matter. They are really mean buggers. They will chase each other unitl there is only one left. At first they will be ok, but once settled in. Not good.

Well, just came back from the LFS, no Flame or Coral Beauty Angels. Or Angels, for that matter. My dad really likes the Tangs, though. I wonder if I should tell him they need a 125 gallon tank. Anyway, I saw these awesome little things called Camel Shrimp. Does anyone know what they do, like clean algae?

Camel Shrimp are often misidentified as Peppermint Shrimp. Pretty much the same thing. No algae eating, well, they'll pick at it, but not really big enough to put a dent in it, scavengers.
