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.

If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right.

I remember when zoanthids were called things like "green" and "orange" and not "reverse gorilla nipple."

Current Tank Info: 180g reef with all the bells and whistles

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.
