Keeping a Lemonpeel angel in a reef tank.

Hey: is any one having luck keeping a lemonpeel angel in their reef tank? What corals do they bother most? Can things be done to keep them from nipping at your corals? Thanks alot!

Maybe you already know this but any centropyge angel is a crap shoot in a reef tank. I have never owned a lemonpeel but I do own a coral beauty. The way she picks at basically everything in the tank, I would never trust her
in a reef.
Your milage may vary.
Oh, I almost forget.....welcome to AA!!!!!

FWIW, the lemon peel and false lemon peel are the most likely pygmy angels to pick at corals. For what ever reason, they are more likely to be a problem in a reef when compared to the rest of the dwarf angels.

From what I understand, any angel likes to pick at clam mantles and polyps for the most part, but each angel has their favorites and that's individual to the fish. Personally, I wouldn't trust a Lemonpeel in a reef.
We, as a people, know so much more about outer space than we do about our own oceans. This lack of knowledge can very well spell the dangers that lay in wait for us.

The oceans surely would swallow us before a rock comes down to smite the planet of it's life.

i had a leamonpeal in my fowlr tank which had 2 starfish. She loved to pick at the starfish, so i had to give her away.

Just my experience (beautiful fish though, big swimmer)

A beautiful fish, bit too risky for a reef. I would skip it.

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
