New rusty angel

Not the best pic will get a better one later. But this is my rusty angel that's getting acclimated

Careful. They are nippy on LPS. I have a Golden dwarf that if it wasn't so rare and rare to keep alive, I'd get rid of him.

Yes I am aware of that. Most of my corals are soft corals anyway

He has now been in the tank for about 5 hours and hasn't nipped any corals. He goes up and looks at them then swims away. I no he may start but hopefully he won't

He's a photo of him in the tank. Please excuse the lines on the glass. Would of wiped it off but didn't want to stress him even more.

Hopefully not. Mine didn't start for a few days. I know mine is a different species, but she wouldn't eat. She eats anything I feed the tank now, but still nips occasionally. What I do now, is go to my lfs and take any fleshy dying corals (wellsy's, trachy's, etc) and let her eat that. It seems to be working.

Thats a cool fish. Any dwarf angel will have the "coral nipping" risk. I had a rusty for about 6 months and he was awesome! Problem was I didn't really plan well with stocking order and he was the 2nd fish I put in after a bad crash and he was king of the tank... He killed a royal gramma, LN hawk, diamond goby and an anthias before I took him back to the fish store. So I would say make sure to add hardier and preferably bigger fish after him you should be good.

He's definitely already one of my favourite fish. Do you adding a six line wrasse after him will be bad?
