  • 3" Juvi Emperor Angelfish

    How safe is the Emperor angelfish with SPS as an adult, and a juvenile? By sps I mean acropora and montipora, and stylophora and pocillopora and seritopora. What about crocea clams with them? Thanks, Adam

    I've had a Juv for several months with the corals you listed. My clams are in a different tank so I couldn't say. I think Bob's had success with his IIRC.

      Hi Adam, over my 15yrs. of SPS keeping, I had 3 Imperators. I've never had one nip at a healthy SPS or clam. They will eat coral tissue from one that's RTN'ing. Now a blue sponge is a horse of a different colorBob

        is this for your 75? if so i think at 15 inches that fish is WAY to big for your tank! i think they need a 6 foot tank, and even then its cutting it short. also i woudl not put it in your 130 either.

        as far as any large angels go its a CHANCE that you are taking some are better than others, look into the bellus, wantabie, or masked swallow tail, but they are still to big for your tank! i would say it a chance with any large angel, the better ones are the conspic (a alot of $$$), goldflake, emperor, blueline,

        like on RC research and more research, look it up online to see the max size and then ask specific questions, adam the key to posting is asking specific questions and researching, not trying to be mean just trying to help you out, but its a 70/30 chance with emperors, BUT i would say that at 15" its WAY to big for your tank even then 130! i woudl stay away from the small angels too like the flame and coral beauty.

        hope this helps some, but i would say no for your 75 or 130 as far as the emperor goes, if the 130 is going to be FOWLR then you could add a smaller angel but only one.

          oh yeah if your SPS slime up i think the angel will be more tempted to go after it, maybe when you get a 180 or bigger try this angel. i really think it needs a 180 or bigger tank IMO.

            Emp should go in nothing less then an 8ft tank unless its tall, even then 6' is the least. Really needs to be 200 gallons plus. They are built to swim and never sit still. Bob’s is awesome for sure, large, very healthy due to the fact there is little rock so he has nothing but room. Even if you buy him small they grow fast, and if you are like me once they are in your tank they become part of the family. Please go with a different Angle there are a lot of them out there to choose from.

              did I ever say this fish was for my 75, or my 130?
