Those guys are a valued part of your clean up crew. Just because they stroll across your zoas as they do their job doesn't make them a bad guy. You can get a handful of hermit crabs and they will do the exact same thing making your zoas close up too.
BUT, if you have to get rid of them there are traps that are made for such. You might be able to borrow one from your LFS or even find a DIY trap as well.

If they are a good part of the cuc why do people get rid of them?

A ton of misunderstanding about them and thinking they are all fireworms, when there is only one fireworm. These guys will get huge if you overfeed your tank and then people blame the worm for doing its job and you start seeing coral and fish deaths...it HAS to be the giant worm!
And with a side note, the bristles on these guys can hurt. Just like getting stung like a bee.

You got lucky if they're getting along so far...
Guess time will tell if you still have 2 dwarf angels down the road

So, I'll reflect here real quick to make sure we're on the same page...standard 55 tank with no other inhabitants besides the clean up crew and some coral. Want a kole, 6 line, and flame angel? Could work if you introduce the flame last.

55 gallon reef aquarium UPDATE

The trick to keeping dwarf angles together is having lots of room and lots of caves for escape. I have had 4 together for almost 15 years (same ones). But you've seen my reef, there are hundreds of places for each fish to hang out without fear of attack. In a smaller space, they can't get out of each other's way and fights can suddenly erupt. Flames in particular vary widely as to their taste for polyps. They constantly pick at surfaces and that alone can irritate some sensitive corals, dusters and clams. As said earlier, a angel of any kind eliminates having clams IMO.
