I am just now getting started with corals. I have a 75 gallon aquarium with about 75 pounds of live rock. The tank has been cycled since December. I have 2 clowns, 3 cardinals, 1 orange watchman goby, 1 yellow tang (very small), and 1 Potter's Angel fish. Well I read an article on the Potters a few months back but when I went to the fish store, I don't know what happened, I bought one. Well I do know what happened, they are cool looking fish. He's doing well and seems to have survived the 1 month period so hopefully he will last. Now, I have added 3 corals so far: 1 pom pom xenia, 1 candy candy coral (Pocillopora verrucosa), 1 Indigo Digitata (Montipora digitata). Well the angel seems to be facinated by the candy cane coral and not quite sure what to do. Apparently I was pretty much gullible when the LFS
told me that pygmy angels do not care for corals. So here is my question for all...is there any amount of persuasion I can do to stop him from eating them? I have heard buy a green brain coral and he will eat that for a few years but that sounds kind of bogus to me. Any thoughts?
