At what point (in an established tank) where the corals are all thriving and you have to do trimming anyways would the angel be a pain to have? If its not just picking on one type of coral- wouldn't it be a help in the long run trimming for you?

***not a statement- an honest question!

corals

i would think if they pick at a coral too much it could damage it which might lead to its demise.

But that's what I mean. If they didn't just pick at one coral. I dunno. I'm not chancing it anytime soon by any means.

Do they pick at soft corals? Or just Lps?

i have had my coral beauty for 5 years and the only coral he went after was an open brain he kept picking and picking and so the darn thing kept retracting so i moved it to the 65 gal.other than that he has been great.i guess in summary is you spend alot on corals and fish and when you see something you worked hard for injured or damaged it disappoints you.i try to research as much as i can on something i want but then again their are no gaurantees.it sure makes this hobby challenging.

Angels usually go after LPS. I think I have been lucky since I feed a variety of food herbivore and meaty type. I tend to feed rather heavy as well so that could be the reason they don't.
