Quick questioné

Hello everyone,
I want to add a dwarf angel to my stock list for my 29 gallon biocube build... One problem though... It's going to be a reef:/ I was wondering what all do Angels nip at? Do they nip at softies and mushrooms? Or just Lps? If I add an algae clip would it decease the chance of nipping?
Thanks to you

Going to have to just roll the dice and take your chances..
My angel ate everything but shrooms and rics...I know others with the same angel i have and have tons of SPS and LPS in with it..
No fish is the same,,just have to ask yourself ,is it worth it to have an angel...For me It IS!!!

Make sure it is well fed. If mine aren't one of them will eat coral.

This shows that each has their own personality, one of my angels only nips when I don't feed twice a day. The others never nip.

In FTMMWS tank no matter how much food he puts into his tank his angel nips.

There is no telling if one angel is a nipper or not until they have corals in front of them
