    Flame and Coral beauty in mixed reef - has it worked for you?

    Have any of you had success with Flame and Coral Beauty angels in a mixed reef tank with acans, zoas, leathers and easy sps?

    I had a coral beauty at one time, and really liked that fish. He never messed with anything or anybody and was cool to see him swim. Shy at first but then warmed up more. Liked hanging out at the fringe of the reef.

    Besides that there's a caution warning with these fish on corals, I would pick one and not both.
    Not sure how large your tank is but in my 200G I can't hold two Dwarf angels from the Centropyge family.
    Myself have a Flame and Bandit and yes they nip on my SPS and my SPS love it.
    If I put zoa's, acan's or any other meaty corals in my tank they will make a meal out of it.
    Strange thing is that they stay away from my Blasto's.
    I don't regret the things I did wrong............ I regret the good things I did for the wrong people.

    I have both and have never had any problems with either of them nipping at anything.

    Have had both and been unable to keep acans with them. They seem to be candy to them. If you decide I would put both in at the same time.
    Otherwise first in will probably kill the newer one.

    It's really dependent on the fish. Some will go to town on the acans others will take the occasional nip or ignore them completely.

    Those seem to be the two that are less of a threat for me. They pick a little, but not near as much as the other angels in my experience.
