What do you think?

Heres my problem. First off let me tell u my tank. 1 yellow tang, 1 hippo tang, 1 lemarks angel, 1 flame angel, 2 clowns ocellaris, 1 firefish, in a 75 gallon tank. I have mixed reef with about 8 different types of zoas, a couple softy's like a tyree toadstool, kenya tree, ricordias, mushrooms, althenia etc.... My LPS consist of a torch, hammers, neon green candy canes, grape coral, and a elegance. My SPS consist of a blue digi, milli's, misc staghorns, tri color acro, and some monti's. the problem is the flame angel. He doesnt bother any soft coral which is good, i know for a fact that he kills acans. He really doesnt touch LPS from the hammer and frogspawn genus, he doesnt touch a single "healthy" SPS. So this is whats going on. He eats dying SPS, or so i think, it seems he only nips at bleaching ones. For example he doesnt touch my huge red monti that its super healthy but on the other hand i just got a green stylo frag today that has a little bleaching and he wemt to town, its about half bleached now. What do you guys think, should i deal with the beauty of him and sacrifice a coral here and there or should I net him, also if he nips at acans what other brains will he nip, lobos, favia, scoly's etc, i really want to get a scoly and mabye favia in the future, what should i do....its seems like im stuck through a rock and a hard place

I have similar predicament with my flame angel. I am thinking of getting a nanocube and heal the bleaching coral before putting it back to my 60 gal DT.

ooooh, you're gonna get in trouble.... no bumping... Anyhow, I've been considering getting a Flame Angel and have heard about this behavior. I'm on the fence for sure, especially after reading this and hearing other similar stories. Maybe I'll just ad a different fish. So far I've a got a maroon, and will be getting another. I'm gonna add a Dragon Goby and a Coral Beauty pretty soon and then the Maroons will go in.

Finally got me a 28 gal nano cube for my corals. My 60 gal will become folr only. Now I can have butterfly fish and all sort and not worry about nippings.
