I`ve had bad experiences with angels in my reef tank. Just dont wait to long if you do see him nip. And yes you will have to look for the tag that says " Reef safe" from now on.

I think those snails are also called "sundial" if I'm not mistaken!!? There is a big writeup about the on wetweb media and I've heard they can consume an entire colony of Zoo's within a week???? 8O ... definitely not a keeper!

God grant me the serenity to accept the thing's I can not change, the courage to change the thing's I can and the wisdom to know the difference!

I wish I lived near you should I could feed the snail to my 5 inch peacock mantis.

Polyps, although simple are one of my favorite corals. They look great and night time with LED lighting and they give off a beautiful glow under actinic lights.

The best part of these corals is watching them grow and spread quickly. Don't expect too much growth atleast for a couple months, but when they take off they spread like weeds! mine was about the size of a quarter when I got it, it has almost quadrupled in size.

The decorator crab really is ok to if you don't mind that he steal a polyp, macro, sponges, etc from time to time to dress himself.
Will the decorator crab continue to pick at corals once he is covered? I wouldn't mind having one if he just covers huimself with goodies and then stops. Do they use xenia? Or just small polyps?

Yeah, they will continually change their adornments. They'll use anything they can find. I watched a show on Animal planet where one was offered bits of colored cloth and within a few minutes it had used every bit of it. I think if you have a small system and only a few corals, they wouldn't be the best choice but in a large system with an abundance of things, it may not be as bad.
