I'm setting up a 125 gallon tank in a few weeks, using live rock and live sand. I'd like to move my fish (currently in 10 gallon QT) to the tank when it's ready. I have 4" Niger trigger, 4" Xanthurus Angel, 3" Flame angel and 4" Maroon Clownfish. What types of coral would you recommend that are less likely to be consumed by these fish. Also plan to add a tang or two (probably 3") and some other small fish. I was thinking zoas, mushroom, Duncan. Not sure, would love recommendations so I aquascape and light the tank properly when I set it up.

I know some angel will consume coral I personally would go for more brittle coral as I feel there are teeth will not be able to grab on or break it as easily. I would try brain corals and hammers and plates corals as there more brittle. And if you are to add zoas keep a constant eye on them at they are soft and each to munch on

Does it matter to you whether your fish are captive-bred or wild caught?
