I would not trust them either. I`ve had to get rid of a flame angel as it was wrecking my tank. I`ve taken the "NO Angels" pledge

Althought most are against Angels in there tank- I know of a few people that actually have had success in keeping Large and Small Angels in there Reef Systems and had success- IMO I feel you can keep them if they are well feed or 3 x a day but it depends on your system and your bioload to feed 3 times a day- I know most Angels are happy and leave corals alone with they are properly feed. I will in the near future try this out on keeping them- I know Sanjay has some Large Angels in his reef system without any problems at all... I will contact him to see what his methods are in keeping them from eating corals.

I've never had a problem keeping angels in large or nano reef tanks, except for a few stubborn pickers, but even then the amount of damage was minimal. Tank is correct in that fish will subside what we call "bad behavior" when they have more food offered to them throughout the day. IME fish can become bored so offering varied foods peaks their activity level and redirects their destructiveness. As long as the food is eaten there shouldn't be any waste. Either way there is an inherant risk in most fish available for purchase in feeding on our "reef."

A reef isn't a reef without an angelfish
