I want to put more coral in my tank and I'm sacred that my fish will eat them I have very stable water levels and I also want to put an emperor angel fish in there and I'm warned that it will eat all my coral so the hardiest corals you know would help my tank is 270 g

The type of coral you can support depends on many things.

What kind of lighting do you have?

What are your water parameters? Ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, pH, SG, PO4, Ca?

What size tank is it and what else is in the tank?

How established is the tank i.e. how old is it?

Answering these questions will help folks suggest some corals you may have success with. However with the angel, you might not get away with any coral at all. It will depend on the habits and temperament of your particular fish.

My dwarf angel ate over $100 worth of coral before I got him out and put him in a FOWLR tank. The only ones he didn't bother we're the mushrooms, green finger leather and blue chalice. He picked at the trachy, maze brain, birds nest, all the zoas, red/green chalice, ate one of the heads of my radioactive trumpet- there was very little he didn't like. And he was just a dwarf angel, and not full size yet.
