Coral beauty

Does anyone keep one of these in a reef tank I've heard people say they can be put in reefs but I've also heard they eat coral does anyone keep these with corals?

I house one in my 55 reef. They, like most if not all, dwarf angels are hit or miss. I feed my tank twice a week with mysis or blood worms to keep him full enough to where he won't nip at my coral. It still is a constant feeder, swimming around plucking at algae growth around the tank. I strongly believe that if you have an alge free tank then you are setting yourself up to fail in terms of this fish and coral.

So as long as I have plenty of food it should leave the coral alone? Will they eat seaweed clips etc if I don't have much algae in the tank?

Should...but never a 100% imo. If it discovers coral taste better... I'm also unsure of the seaweed clips as I have never used them.

I have a coral beauty in my 75 gallon reef I believe for two years now and it has never nipped at coral that I have noticed. She really likes the seaweed on a clip! But I may just be lucky!
