Planning a new dwarf angel ended up on this thread. Veeery nice.

My experience -
Bicolor angelfish - tearing apart zoas - not eating, not picking - tearing apart and spit them. Didn't touch other LPS. Beginner tank, bad feeding habit? Don't know.

Now, more experience, new tank - plan to add coral beauty and flame at same time in LPS/SPS/zoa tank.

I had a coral beauty for 2 years, did not bother anything. I had an automatic feeder that released pellets 4 times a day, and I also fed frozen brine-shrimp once per day. I had him with frogspawn, montipora digitata, and toadstool coral.

Queen angel, had it for almost 9 years and was only "1 when I got her. Was in a tank with soft corals, mostly leathers, mushrooms, finger, and buttons. Was fine as a juvenile, but the last 2 years I had her it ate all of the softies except the shrooms ! Unfortunately I lost her in a freak heat wave .
Cherubs no problems with any corals, LPS, softies, etc.

Thank you for doing this! Definitely going to help a lot of people out. I have four angels currently in a fish only with live rock tank but I will be adding SPS to the tank later this year when everything is stable like a rock.

Japanese swallowtail - no harm to any coral
Bellus pair - female looks interested in grazing on coral but has only eaten the mucus after spot feeding
Red Sea female tiger angel - so far not picked on any coral
Lamarck - has not picked on any coral
Flame - nipped on some food corals were eating but not any actual coral

Juvi emperor about to transition. So far no corals on the diet. I have zoos, acans and sps in the tank. I wouldn’t be super upset if I lost the Zola’s but he isn’t going for them

I actually bought mine from my LFS who bought several captive bred Singapores and a several blue lines from poma labs...fish was very healthy...not shy at all and does great....I sent a email to poma labs to let them know to keep up the good work...and the owner responded back...he thanked me and wanted me to keep in touch to let know how he is doing! I think you should go for it...if you Google poma labs there are some great reviews on there!!!

Matt, Nuri and Poma are crushing it and have some pretty crazy things coming!
Glad to see your little girl is doing so well.

Carrots toss up some pics of yours when you get them.

I am in the process of moving so will be moving the tank, when i do my Flame Angel is history! He has been in tank for about a year now but he destroyed my acans, lobo and frogspawn. At first i wasn't sure it was him, though i had an issue with water since i never saw him touch anything at first and tank was well fed.... until one night from across the room i saw something red around my acan colony..... snuck over to tank and watched him tearing flesh off, then started to catch him pulling frogspawn and lobos apart. I tried multiple times to catch but couldn't and by then damage was done................. never again will i try an angel. Just my experience.

LPS are generally the targeted victims of angels in a reef... and this is why I removed all of my LPS prior to adding angels. Otherwise, I haven't seen any picking at SPS and softies are generally ok too (with exception of course... xenia).
