From what I've read, people's experiences have been mixed. Some have flame angels that have never looked at the corals in the tank, others have had them immediately get to picking at the polyps.

I heard some LPS corals to. But that all come on which size you get them if you buy them small you can kind of tame them not to pick at your corals, when they become adults.

They can and will pick at LPS corals for sure. Clams are ify as well. I decided after much debate to have one. I've wanted one for a long time and I have been without an angel since my Coral Beauty died during my tank disaster.

So far the angel has not messed with anything in the tank. Believe me I am keeping a very close eye on it.

Personally I'd never hesitate in adding a dwarf angel to a tank and there are ways to curbing their appetites towards coral.
