Juvi Emperor Angel Questions

Hi everyone,

I have a 65 gallon tank. It's a truvu custom, I've been cultivating coral in and selling it back to the local fish stores for years, and I've had experience in some more complicated fish.

OK, now to my question. I recently sold 90% of my coral to start over, and would like to add an Emperor Angel.... I know I know.... Too small of a tank, but I know that within 14-18 months, I will have to remove him and rehome him (probably to the same fish store I bought it from)... So my question is, do you think it's ok to keep an Emperor angel (about the size of a nickel right now) in a 65 gallon tank with only clowns and a goby as tank mates.... Knowing that I will have to part ways in a little over a year?

Thank you, the timeline isn't set in stone, I'll know the second he gets overly aggressive the or lateral line problems... tank is too small, so I am not just basing it on size. Thank you for your support though!
