false lemon peel just started munching some zoas I love that fish so hopefully i can build a new home for him soon and replace his spot with a regal
I keep both of these currently together, without issue.Over the years I've always had good luck with Flame and Coral Beauty Angels.
Had them long term too.
Had 1 Flame for 10 years and a Coral Beauty for nearly 14 years.
My current Flame has been with me about 5 years.
I have one who acts the same way. Reef safe but temper is worse than my PB or Purple tangs.My spotbreast angel is completely reef safe and he’s a complete ******, chasing any new comer and anything white or remotely similar looking. He’s in QT jail for attacking my new convict tang. Kinda wanna re-home it.
Mine acts the same way. Leaves all corals alone but is meaner than my PB or Purple Tang if a new fish is added.My spotbreast angel is completely reef safe and he’s a complete ******, chasing any new comer and anything white or remotely similar looking.

This sounds familiar. My coral beaut does not touch any corals that were in the tank the day he was added. Anything new I add is at risk. Especially if it is in his patrol path.I always wondered if the trick was to introduce the fish after all the corals are in? I once had a wrasse that did wrasse things. He never bothered my sexy shrimp. I purchased some more and dropped them in the tank. The wrasse unceremoniously at $100 in shrimp in like 30 seconds. He never bothered or started bothering the ones in the tank. I wonder if just like my dog thinks anything I put in her bowl is food, if fish think the same.
I really want a multicolor to go with my multibar in my 160, so i'm currently trying to do my research on their habits. hopefully yours doesn't go after coralsI love dwarf angels, probably my favorite fishes. They are spunky without being aggressive and extremely active.
I’ve had numerous Centropyge over the years and most have not bothered corals at all. Below is a list of the ones I’ve kept and how they’ve done. These were kept with LPS/SPS dominant tanks, with a few zoas:
So my experience with dwarf angels, not including the new Multicolor, 20% nipped at corals. That’s probably a high number for some people but a risk I’m willing to take for my favorite fish.
- 3 coral beauties (1 picked at a monti occasionally)
- 3 lemonpeel (1 picked nipped at some LPS randomly)
- 2 flame (no issues)
- 2 potters (no issues)
- 1 Multicolor (TBD, new setup)
