Was looking at Coral Beauty for my 70 gallon reef tank. With all angels they say caution and was curious if captive bred would be more reef friendly being raised in captivity rather than in the wild where it could have had prior experience going after corals. Have any of you had great success with these captive bred dwarves?

Not sure if any of my 2 have been captive or not, likely not, but if well fed, does not nip at my corals.

We were told the same thing as we wanted to add a coral beauty or a flame angel to our reef tank. Not sure if that is true but I am interested to read the responses! :)

I wouldn't be able to prove it one way or the other. But captive bred ones being more reef-safe sounds like a sales pitch, and doesn't make any sense to me.
