Thinking about a flame angel.

I am trying to decide if I should get a flame angel for my reef tank.
I don't have any corals in the aquarium yet and the only thing holding me back is nipping at corals.
I wanted to ask how many of you have a flame angel in their reef tank, and if it (your flame angel, not flames in general) does, or doesn't nip at corals.

i had 2, neither of which nipped at corals. keeping them on a highly-nutritious diet usually will help to curb their taste for corals.

It just depends on personality.... some will be the best angel that doesn't bother anything but others can nip on corals. If it actually did nip at the corals, the flame angel wouldn't destroy them... itll just taste test them now and again.

I just got a flame about 2 weeks ago, beautiful fish, and he hasn't nipped at my zoas at all. Shows absolutely no interest in them. Having said that, I only have one medium sized colony in my tank.

from everyone's experience.... do you think a flame angel would survive against a bunch of large tangs in a 10ft long tank? have at the moment a yellow tang, hippo tang, chocolate tang, vampire tang, lopezi tang and a tomini tang lol.... so a few tangs but I love the flame angel but always afraid it would get eaten lol

yep. and the flame was the fish going into the tank on both occasions. the worst i seen was the purple following the flame around for about 20 minutes. but never any contact.
