Yellow Angel - In Timeout

How long can I keep this yellow angel in this 10.2 inch (1/2 gallon) breeder box. I added a female BT for my male and the yellow didn't like it too much, so I had to move him. He's been in the box for 24 hours. Will likely re-introduce tomorrow or Saturday if consensus is that he's ok for a little longer.

I don't know how long he can stay in the penalty box, ammonia would be my biggest concern.

Not trying to hijack your thread...but I do have some questions about the yellow angel in general. I was looking for a pygmy cherub; the LFS said they couldn't get one but did get a yellow. I haven't been able to find a lot on them. What I did said tank size anywhere between 30- 70 (I have a 46.) Do you think that's big enough and (I know it's fish dependent but) how much does it bother corals. I have 1 mushroom, 1 hammer and 1 frag of growing zoas.

I assume that box shares water with the display? If so, and the box is covered, it shouldn't be any problem for a timeout. A couple days should be fine.

A sump might be a better longer term place for timeout, if you have one.


Current Tank Info: 125 in-wall , 40b sump. 6 bulb T5. ASM G2 skimmer. LPS and leathers

My thoughts, just put some holes in there.
