I've had both in my "cart" at some point on both liveaquaria and bluezooaquatics. I keep changing my mind because I'm not sure if I want the risk of them nibbling on corals. But I really like both of those fish.

I've noticed that when they do eat corals, of all the corals I have they only eat acupora

Is it just the flame and coral beauty or all centropyge angels? My favorite is the bicolor angel, but would go with the flame angel if it's between just coral beauty and flame.

I have a 75 Gallon tank, and went with a 20 gal sump. The sump wasnt big enough to also have a refugium. So now I have a 75 Gal sump with plenty of room. LOL. Keeping the old tank for a quarantine hospital if I ever need it.

I've been having problems with what I believe to be cyanobacteria. It is a maroon redish color, but it isn't the typical "mat" you typically hear of. There are long very silky/feathery strings that don't really appear to be attached to a mat. And some matted blue/greenish cyano on the sand. So I've been battling this for a few weeks, which is why there are no updates.

Needless to say, there is a lesson to be learned here - PATIENCE! I've been sucking this stuff out w/ a turkey baster and vacuuming it up during water changes, but less than 24 hours and it's back. So I came home at lunch yesterday and it was HORRIBLE. The phosphate remover pellets I've had in a media bag tied to the overflow pipe didn't appear to be making a difference. I was desperate - I went to the LFS and got some chemiclean (mr x - the box says no erythromycin) so I got a box of it and brought it home after work.

Apparently the Aquarium Gods really didn't want me using it, because the "stringy" algae went from it's worst (at 1:30 pm) to 85% gone at 5:30 pm without using the chemiclean!
