Most angels are considered NOT coral friendly. There may be people that got lucky and the angel didn't eat their coral but for the most part that's not the case.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

All fish are individuals. You could have an angel in a reef for 10 years and your corals would all be perfectly fine, but then one day your angel just decides to eat half of a colony. It is a risk, and one not worth taking IMO

I dont know of any coral that an angel is more/less prone to eat though..
