I was going through some threads concerning dwarf angels, specifically flame angels, eating corals and a thought occurred to me. Is the tendency to eat corals more prevalent in very young fish or adults? I’ve own two personally and known of several others, both of my fish were purchased as very young specimens and I never had any coral nipping issues. My friends with nippers purchased theirs as adults. Is it possible that coral nipping is a learned behavior, curbed in young well fed aquarium raised fish? Or is it a regional thing, where supposedly the “redder” fish tend to be more likely to eat corals?I think there’s enough information on just this forum gathered to make some educated observations.
