I have a 6" emp just placed in a 125, want to add 4" blue face.

Will it work? It asking for trouble....

In a perfect world, as you know, you would have added the smaller angel first. I had this pairing in the past except the Blueface was 2" bigger. The Emperor quickly became the boss and hogged the front feeding areas. There was never any ripped fins though as the Blueface stayed submissive and always got out of the Emperor's way. Both are beautiful fish so good luck & enjoy.

Two large angels in a small tank? Neither is a good idea and two will not work longer term.

The tank is definitely too small. Emps get really big, and can be Bulldogs. I have a 5" emp and added a juvie coloured blue face and annularis. The emp was not happy at ALL. he took some time to let both of them who was boss. And they learned fast who that was.

I would be nervous adding a 4" bf to that size tank.

They are an amazing fish as well, and if the same size as the emp, I think you would both be out of room, and have a fatality.

Don't do it.

You could add a regal however. My emp didn't care about him at all. They sleep in the same cave!
