I am building a 50 gallon reef/fish tank...Looking to get an angler, would he be good with these fish I have on my list:

blenny
Dottyback
Clownfish
Small puffer
flame hawk
Flame angle
maybe a few other fish not sure

I know they eat small fish not sure how they are in a community of fish.
Thanks

Its my understanding they can and will try to eat fish there own size and slightly bigger. I believe most the fish you listed would be dinner.

No, for many reasons it is best to keep an angler in a species only tank, and best kept alone. They will eat anything up to their own size, their feeding requirements can be challenging, and they prefer low flow.
