I had a flame angel which came with my 2nd hand tank with corals-he was fine -didnt touch them. Nor did the lemon peel, coral beauty or bi colour and people say not to mix them. Maybe I just had enough rocks etc for them to hide

As a general rule of thumb, the more reef friendly dwarf angel is the coral beauty. Even these guys can be hit or miss. I currently have one in my 55 reef and, though I have watched him nip at algae near coral and caused them to retract and hide, haven't witnessed them intentionally go after them...this is with him for over a year at this point. It goes to the personality of the fish. Some will go postal on corals while others have no interest. When corals start getting real expensive, their existence becomes more important than a 10 dollar fish and in my personal hindsight, I'd get rid of the coral beauty just for piece of mind in case it loses its mind while I'm at work and can't do anything about it.

I believe some well known reef safe fish can accidentally taste the flesh of soft corals and start to like them. This is what happened to my flower pot coral which had been in my tank for as long as my yellow tang for more than a year. Lately I started to notice a portion of my flower pot closing. Then I saw my yellow tang is nibbling it. So I moved the coral to my 29 gal nano and it flourish again.
