pygmy angel and sps

on live aqueria, it says these fish may eat lps, but gives no mention of sps, any reason why? Also what are some example of sps?
Thanks

I wouldnt worry too much about sps corals, you won't have the lighting for them. :-( Here is an SPS coral

Cerealis Acropora Coral

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Seems like for fish with reef caution, it's hit or miss and depends on the fish itself.

It may or may not help. I have talked to people that have had one in their tank for 4 years before it decided corals taste good. Needless to say they had to basically start over after having to move everything out of the tank to get it and to replace the corals it decided was on it's menu.

Not to be a smarty pants here but it seems that all the people above did help you. I know it isn't what you were hoping to hear but the info they gave you was good info. They just don't want to see you have a bunch of heart ache if it didn't work out. It is up to you but, if I were you, I would listen to what they say. Stick with reef safe fish if you want a reef. If you want non-reef safe fish, go fowlr. If you try to do both, you are tanking a risk. None of us can change the facts but just try to live with them. Hope that helps.
