no need to get upset mate, im just stating my point of view just as you are to develop a good conversation to get more ideas. and no I cant predict what a fish will do, thats a very passive aggressive statement, but I can research and get an idea from people who own them. Keeping fish is always a risk...In my hi-tech planted tank I have a Blue ram that eats any small leafed plant I get like foxtail, is that normal for rams no its not but its something I have to deal with in my tank because I have that fish that enjoys plucking each little hair off the foxtail.

Oh definatly not upset, just doing the same as you are. Either way, from all that iv heard, angels nip. And they do most of the time. Just the other day, melousu (sp?) had to tear down his reef just to find an angel that was destroying half of his corals. The fish hadnt killed corals for several years, and then, it was killing most of them. Just my input

Yeah even if it doesn't nip at first it may down the road. And plus they are IMPOSSIBLE to catch. If its a fowlr, go for it but I wouldn't risk all that coral $$$. They will literally eat corals.

I had two dwarf angels that were model citizens for 4 yrs and then they went munching on corals. I had to tear the whole tank down to catch them. Please dont let someone tell you that they will leave corals alone. They destoyed some LPS and soft corals in my tank. I just hate to see someone say they wont mess with corals when I know better.

I have three dwarfs in my 250 gallon reef for over 10 years. The only really safe one is my coral beauty, the flame is so so, the black tail needs to get caught and sent to the LFS. Also, they need a big tank as they roam continuously and need lots of caves and swim thrus. You also can't keep clams with most angels.

In my case, I was lucky over the long term, but every fish is a little different and to be safe you shouldn't do what I did...
