What angel should I get?
I have been reefing for about a year now, and I am sad to say that it looks like my very first fish will have to go back to the store. My Coral Beauty started munching on my newest aquisition, a beautiful tri-coloured Symphilia, and since then, has also been nipping at my Toadstool and other corals in the tank. Have never had a problem with her in the past, but it looks like she is no longer reef safe. Is it true that once they get a taste for corals they will always want to eat them, or is this a phase? It is sad, because as I said, she is my first fish, and survived a major tank crash in the summer, so I have a soft spot for her.
My questions are: Should I get rid of her, or will she cool it with eating the corals? If I get rid of her, what other angel fish would be suitable for a 90 gallon tank? Of course I'd love to have an Emperor, but I hear you need upwards of a 200 gallon for one of those to do well. In my 90 gallon, I also have a purple firefish, two ocellaris clownfish, a midas blenny, a marine beta, a fairy wrasse, a watchman gobby, and a yellow tang (that is 8 fish plus the angel that would be going back). I should also mension that it wouldn't have to be an angel, any cool fish suggestions that would do well in this size tank with these tankmates would be greatly appreciated. I have also been thinking about adding another tang, but I don't want the tang police after me, so suggest one that would work in this tank only (considering I already have a yellow).
