well...I hope so cause I am getting a Coral Beauty Angel!!!


accually not really, but they all have different personalities and you might get lucky.

I hear they are moderately reef safe for the most part. just keep them well feed and you should have few problems.

or so the proficies have fore told....

I had a cb in with some soft corals, never had a problem with him. This doesn't mean that a different fish won't have a different view on what's food and what's not. They are a great fish, just keep an eye on him for a while after he's introduced.

Hard to say. IME health-wise younger fish tend to be hardier than adult fish which have fully adapted to their envirnment before being plucked out and placed in mine. So as a rule I buy the youngest fish I can find. This could also help in this case, if they've never seen corals as food. But again, with any live animal we can only generalize about it's potential behavior.
