-As for the dwarf angels I heard It is a 50/50 chance on them eating polyps, If I notice this behavior my LFS alows a full value exchange, and a partial money back guarantee.
-I was thinking a pistol or a mantis shrimp, but I got cut by a mantis and have been hesitant about putting one in my tank. Are ornamental mantis (mantii?) shrimp similar to the green mantis we have in Florida?
- How about some suggestion on the order of placing these fish in the tank? I know your supposed to place the most aggressive fish last.

oooo i dont know about that mantis, they can be pretty nasty, to other inhabitants and to their owners... they dont call em thumbsplitters for nothing! if your really interested, hook up a 5-10g in line and put him in there. i think the pistol shrimp would be a much better and morei nteresing choice, esp if you got his symbiotic goby.

i would place the angel last.

seafan: I heard mantis are very nasty too!

And, any angels aren't really considered reef-safe. They're more than likely to pick at soft corals etc. They're greedy things :P

Skip the mantis and go with the pistol shrimp. I have a tiger pistol shrimp/yellow watchman goby pair and they are very entertaining to watch. I would also skip the angels if you plan to have a reef tank. I learned this the hard way. It is not really a matter of if they will nip at your corals, rather just when.
