    Hi Yuri. From my personal experience, i have noticed my Angel's never touched my Leathers and Euphyllia. When it comes to Meaty corals eg. Brain corals or SPS, it is like Biryani for them.

    Ziyaad. I have kept Jumping Beans for years. Those guys, as well as Flame Angel's have never touched any type of coral.

    :nono:When the butterflies are smaller they tend to leave the corals alone and just eat aptasia but when they get bigger they will start to eat away at corals. Just two weeks ago i put my hammer in another tank and the auriga ate one head in one day.
