What type of coral? Most centropyge angels go after lps corals like acans, euphyllia ( hammer, torch, frogspawn), open brains. Anything that is really fleshy. Softies and sps are generally left alone

I have both frogspawn and torch coral in with my flame and he was fine. never even touched it. individual personality does play a part in it as well .

Seems that you'll get half saying they never touch and half saying the go after LPS like crazy. It's a coin flip. I don't even think the individual species shows any different behavior.
