Im thinking of a dwarf Angel for my tank which has a few frags in it and I plan on adding more. Im sure this topic has been brought up again and again but im wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to which would be the least likely to destroy corals?

I realize that its a risk no matter what, its just that every lfs in my area has a strict no return policy on saltwater fish and im willing to take the chance, just hoping to get a group consensus as to the lesser of the evils so to speak.

The four I have my eye on is the rusty, flame, coral beauty, and eibl's Angel. Anyone have any experience or advice?

From what I hear, coral beauties will be the least, however that's classifying the best of the worst...

I think a coral beauty would work I had a flame and he never bothered anything but of course each fish is different.

Try Potter's Angel. A few years ago I did the same research. I found a spreadsheet on another forum where a user was tracking individual accounts of dwarf angels and their aggressiveness towards clams and corals. Potter's angels was lower than most. I've had one with 2 6-8 inch clams and lots of soft coral. He rarely nips anything.

Are potters difficult to care for? Live aquaria says they are but i know sometimes they say that for one specific reason, such as a copperband being difficult to get to start eating. Wondering what the story is on a potters?

I have had one for at least 3 years now. It has never had an issue. I'm not sure why they would be considered difficult. Tank mates include sailfin tang, Percs, melanoris wrasse, canary wrasse, CBS.

Check out my YouTube channel. The first video labeled aquarium-28 months has my Potter's Angel in at 30 sec mark, and then again after 1:28. The older video labeled aquarium-18 months has him more but the tank looks better to me in the first video

Awesome videos! You got a nice tank! Im gonna prob steer clear of the potters simply for the cost if nothing else. Im too new for a fish that would cost over a hundred bucks! Lol
