Well you may need to tell us what you have before we can tell you if you are good to go.....

What are your parameters and lights etc...?

Welcome to the forum!

Yep, need to know what lighting you have and tank dimensions, ALSO need to know your current stock to see if they are coral friendly

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I'm new, but I'd say go for it! As long as your water is testing right. Just keep in mind compatibility, calcium levels, temperature/lighting requirements.

lemonpeel does not HAVE to go. Many reefs have angels that never touch corals. I suggest getting some cheap low light corals and see what happens. If it nips at them then you can decide what to do.

Agree with above. Either get a cheap coral and get rid of it if it gets ate or get a coral that you really like that is alittle more pricey and if it gets nibbled on...get rid of the angel.

I would say that (4) 21" CPF's wouldn't be growing much coral in a 100 gallon tank either.
