Coral Beauty Problems

I'm reallly thinking about getting rid of this fish. She constantly picks on all of my starfish and recently pecked of a leg of one of them. She destroyed a golden rod gargonia(sp) in less than a week. Is there a reason she ate this coral so quickly? She hasn't really pecked at any of my other corals, but I don't want to buy another one for her to eat.

Anybody think of a good colorful replacement for her?
Thanks
Kyle

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

Midas blenny may be a good choice. Do they act a lot like my tailspot blenny?

Any others?

My midas was always out and about swimming near the front glass and being social. If startled he would swim to his rock and hide in his hidey hole. But overall a really great fish. Mine jumped last week and didn't make it though so a cover might be a good idea if you have one.
