Lemonpeel Angel

I've been reading up on these, and most say they're generally reef-safe. Is this true, has anyone any experience? It's the true Lemonpeel (Dwarf) Angel by the way.

Like most other pygmy angels and maybe even a little better chance with this one, they can nip corals. Hit or miss in a reef.

OK, thanks. What sort of corals would they most likely go for?

If I feed Sea Veggies, I guess they're a lot less likely to nip?

they will likely go for clam mantles, lps polyps, and zoanthid polyps. i have never kept any dwarf angels because of the chance or coral destruction.

No. They're not nipping because they're missing something in their diet, they're nipping because that's just who they are.

I agree that they are just hit or miss. I`m one of those too that will not keep a dwarf angel because I had two that were good fish in my reef for 4 yrs before they almost wrecked it. IMO not worth the risk.

the possibility is just to great for me to risk all of that time and effort in a tank just to have 1 fish come in and possibly destroy it overnight. sorry to be a bearer of bad news.

I always heard lemon peels were the worst...

I know people that keep coral beautys and I have a flame in my 180 reef. I always wanted one and I kept him in my frag system for 4 months. Time will tell, cross fingers, knock on wood , ...

I had a Flame Angel. He was great for 4 months, then I caught him nipping my corals. Had to get rid of him.

Good to hear both sides!

I think I may give one a go, and keep a close eye on him. My LFS is really good, so they may let me take him back after a couple of weeks if he's causing trouble! Beautiful fish though, fingers crossed...
