    I wish there was a tank to properly show off an adult pair of French Angels!

    Stunning, hoping to have coral in my tank as soon as all the fish I want are in and happy.

    I finally found a juvenile Emperor Angel that was the size and stage I wanted. Can't wait to see the transformation to adult. Put in QT yesterday and already ate some mysis this morning.

    How reef safe are the Regal Angels?

    I've had a few individuals in tanks I take care of. Here are some of the corals they've eaten: Dendros, Tubastrea, Symphyllias, Avans, Chalices, zoas, and scolys.

    And at that, they're still considered the "reef-safest" of the larger angels, Genicanthus excepted.

    I'm just deciding to get an angel. I really want a flame angel like badly. Maybe a coral beauty gold flake or potters. Some of the dwarfs. I have hammer corals small polyp coral and anemones... I just got my rocks exactly where I like them most! What is the best angel for these and preventing them from wanting to eat size, acclimation, tank mates, I really want a flame. But if you guys think otherwise I can go against it. Help please

    My understanding is that folks have the best luck with flames and coral beauties. (And the angels of the Genicanthus group, of course...) My own flame does nip at favia corals, while my coral beauty seems to ignore all corals. They're very different fish, though - the coral beauty is something of a perpetual motion machine, always seeming to be on her way to somewhere important.

    Any angel you add, outside of the Genicanthus angels, will be hit or miss. I've seen plenty of reefs with flame angels that do not nip. I put one in my frag tank and it nipped at everything constantly. That being said, I don't hesitate to add any angel to my tanks because I know I would be able to get them out with a fish trap, which I've had to do in the past.

    I have a Cherub Pygmy Angel in my Reef and have seen several others with these. Mine has never nipped at anything.
