I had a flameback angel, beautiful fish and he was doing well in the nano. He left my corals alone...until i tried to make frags of the birdsnest. He would pick at the small pieces and kill them. Then i had to move a plate coral from my seahorse tank to the nano and he was all over that. I then moved the angel to the seahorse tank since it has only mushroom and zoas. He was doing good in there for about 2 weeks, then suddenly he got aggressive and started picking at the horses so he had to go back .
I've got lemon peel angel who is semi aggressive to other fish but doesnt pick on corals... At least not to destroy them ... I guess it's my luck.. He's been in the tank for about 3 years

Light stand: 72 inch Current USA 12x39W Lights: Current T5HO (2)-10kk True lumen T5HO (6)-12kk. Power white Current T5HO (4)-460nm Actinics 220 gallons custom tank

yupp i definitely just had some bad luck with this guy...my friend has one in his reef and it doesn't pick on a thing either. I specifically ordered the flameback too because i've read them to be the least likely to pick haha dang.

My flame DESTROYED my corals. I don't think angels will be making a repeat appearance.

I started a 29g earlier this year and about two weeks ago bought an entire 55g setup and kinda just combined.

I lucked out big time with my cycling, only took a week with Lots of LR and LS that came from an existing tank.

Heres some quickie shots with the new bulbs. I like that theres a blue "base" to the color. And when I switch off the whites at night the color is outstanding!
