Coral beauty

I bought a coral beauty a year ago and he was acting pretty good . Never touched a coral never picked at anything . Now I noticed my brains dying , zoas closing and acans getting smaller. Today was the first time I saw him pick at my acan. What do I do?

Remove him is the best course of action.

They can. If you have seen him nipping, that is enough for me. I've watched mine nip at algae NEAR a coral or polyp, causing it to retract. So make sure that you are seeing what you think you are to be safe. But in hindsight, I would have never added a dwarf angel to my reef tank as even the 'reef safe' ones are with caution and can turn overnight.

2 nets and lots of luck and probably a few curse words. You may want to try feeding a little more, try and get him fat and lazy

Won't help catch but may keep it from nipping at the corals
