Flame Angel & Corals

Is it safe to add a Flame to a mixed reef or is that just a bad idea?

It's a hit or miss. I wouldn't do it because if it starts to nip they are impossible to catch.

IME flame angels was a bad idea. Nearly wrecked my reef and I had to tear it down to get the fish out. From others I have heard this angel is reef safe.

I wouldn't try any dwarf angel again in a reef tank. I had a coral beauty that nipped and picked on my leather coral. I know some people have had no problems with them, but I done with them! impossible to get out of the aquarium unless you tear your tank down.....

I have a lemonpeel that has only picked at anemones but left the corals alone so far. Right now he is in what I call my junk tank with a bunch of softies. I probably wouldn't have him in a tank that I was trying to grow slower growing corals in. He isn't hard to catch if I don't use a net I use my hand to herd him into a plastic container that has food in it.
