Also - If you have anything like a CBB, Wrasse (some Halichoeres, Macropharyngodon, anampses ect.. - Although the leopards and tamarins rarely nip at clam mantles, it’s still a chance you can get that one that does it) that nip at clam mantles, then you may already know what those fish are capable ofAngels that aren’t reef safe have a chance of nipping clams - They’re fleshy at the top (Similar to Fleshy LPS which most angels take a liking to)
ts interesting, I’ve never heard of a true shepherd nip at coralMy first angelfish in a few years arrives tomorrow and I’m super excited. Out of the 7-10 I have kept in the past, only 2-3 gave me issues with nipping. Emperor, Goldflake, and although it wasn’t in my tank at my LFS that had a True Shepard’s which occasionally nipped at an acantho in the tank
I have to disagree with the coral beauty being 100% reef safe. I love my beauty, but he destroys my birds nest coral.I have two: a Coral Beauty and Midnight dwarf angel. The Coral beauty is 100% reef safe but the Midnight is only about 95% safe as it will eat any acans I put in the tank (I always thought I sucked at growing them, but now I suspect why).
Personally I don’t think either of these angels are the worst behaving (YMMV).
