I have a flame in QT now that will go in the tank when I upgrade. I heard they like LPS so I can remove them if needed. He seems to be leaving the softies I have in QT with him.

Gamble but a cool fish...

Yes they love soft fleshy corals like LPS. They destroyed a brain and hammer coral way back in my tank.

I had plans for a Flame Angel and a Coral Beauty. They were pegged to go into my tank. Unfortunately I guess I have to rethink adding them.

Does that inclue Polyp's and mushroom corals?


I purchased a Coral Beauty that is in QT right now, Everyone I talked to said they were reef safe. So that is why I purchased him....

Angels are prone to nip soft fleshy corals. It took 4 yrs for mine to change over to nipping at corals. Some people have never had a problem. It is just a gamble.

I agree with Melosu, it is a risk you either take or don't take. I have a CB in my tank that couldn't care less about the corals all he wants it for me to keep seaweed on the clip for him.

How do you keep seaweed on the clip? Every time I have hung seaweed, one or two picks at it, and it falls off the clip..

I don't know....it just stays on the clip for me. Does it shred up and come off or is the clip not holding it well?

The clips with the wide, straight edges work best, like the ocean nutrition brand clip.
