Good choice of Flame Hawk Danny. Nice little fish. Now don't get a shrimp of any kind! It will tear it to bits.

Haha yeah.

Now, I can either get a flame angel or a potters angel tomorrow. I know its hit or miss with the corals but i love dawf angels.
I think i may go the Potters, But not sure..

Think about that one for a while because you will most likely have to tear the tank apart to catch it if it does go after coral.

They are hit or miss. Like 6 line wrasse. Angels are risky. You never know if it will be reef safe. And if its not, like Thominil said, you have a real bad time getting it out. I have heard of people having them for a year or two and then all the sudden they start nipping and eating coral. My LFS has a tank full of "reef safe" angels and wrasses that have been returned and are no longer considered reef safe.

Yeah, I think i'd like to take the chance. Such a good looking fish is worth the risk, It'd only eat small poylps which i only have one small colony.
Ah well, We'll see how it goes.

I don't know if i would bank on that. I have heard of them turning to the dark side and tearing through entire colonies of zoas and other coral in a matter of just a couple days. I do really like flame angels though. I just kills me that they are so hit or miss around coral.

I agree they are very nice fish but thinking they will stop with zoas is not realistic. Once they get the taste of delicious coral who knows where they will stop. Not to mention getting it out. It will not be easy.
