no he never touched my sps, just every LPS in the tank. By the time I realized it was him it was to late..... plus I couldn't catch him. Tried traps, removing as much rock as I could.... no luck. What can you do. When I move the tank though he will be going to a new home or back to the store. It is sad though because he is a beautiful flame angel. I knew it was a gamble back when I got him, just turned out to be a bad gamble.

Never heard of a Bellus bothering coral before. Though I have never heard or seen a Genicanthus angel eating corals. Have had several over the years and none bothered corals.

it really is a 50/50 maybe even 90/10 . Everyone told me before hand they had angel for year with no issue, even LFS told me they had no problems but did of course say (it could happen)..... well I was the 10% I guess. I knew it was a risk though. If you love the fish I would say go for it, it seems most people don't have an issue. Just know there is a possibility.

Nothing is guaranteed, I had a purple tang for a couple years and it got too large for my tank. Sean Elliot was looking for one so I sold it to the LFS we both used for store credit. It ate $200 worth of coral before they could remove him and place him in Sean's Eel tank to live out his life. That lasted until Sean was traded to Detroit for that funny Tattooed dude that also didn't last very long either.

Yes they came in great shape. The larger one immediately started displaying dominance over the smaller one. The sparing never ended so after two days I separated them in hopes of getting them settled in and eating.

What size did they arrive, looks to be close to 1.5"?

Wow! They look beautiful!!!! Keep us posted! My Singapore from them is doing great.....I just can't believe how beautiful these captive bred Angels look from them! I have seen some captive bred Flame Angels (not from them) and they don't look near as good as wild caught ones....

The Poma Labs bluelines came in around 1 & 1.5 inch. The larger one ripped the tail fin up on the smaller one. It is funny that since they have the egg crate between them they both keep running to the crate to look at each other and displaying for each. Their blue lines really brighten up when doing this. After a few days apart the smaller ones tail has healed back together. I still havenít seen them eat anything that I put in the tank, but their bellies are full from whatever they are finding in the tank. Just like Ted suggested, in a couple days I will put them back together and let them work it out. These two photos are from Poma Labs and used with their Permission.

Regal Angelfish - some new experience with Regal after a long time in the tank. Older and larger fish. Acroporas is safe? Thank you

My Regal Angels have not touched clams or any Acros. With other corals it has been hit or miss. Soft corals like Nephthia have gradually disappeared but Ricordea seem to go untouched. The following LPS seem to survive: Hammers, Grapes, Duncan, and Blastos, This is just my experience with my two Regal Angels and I know others will have different experiences.

Thank you for answer.

I have a lot of corals in the aquarium - SPS Acroporas and LPS (Euphyllia, Scolymia, Catalphyllia, Goniopora, .........) and one fish shop says Regal is safe for LPS and second shop says very danger for LPS. I know each fish is different, but I wanted some opinion from long time owners

Markings are too similar so unless you have a huge tank I would not try
