    Zoos and Mushrooms should be okay. Otherwise you could do gorgonians, nothing chows them, too toxic.

    I've had angels (semis, rhomboides, Coral Beauties, Jumping Beans) and b/flies (aurigas, vaggies, lunula, kleinii, dolosus) with SPS, softies and LPS with little to no problem. Once the aiptasia were gone the b/flies occasionally pecked on Star Polyps and slime from SPS but not enough to be a problem.

    Oh well, looks like it's going to be trial and error :( I did have 2 hammers and 2 frogspawns and a clam in the tank, but they all started getting nailed by the butterflies so I had to remove them. I have one type of mushroom still in there that seems to be safe "for now".

    Zoos are the only coral pecked on by my 6 angels but just a peck not eating them.

    My auriga and vagabond climbed into the Zoas! Haven't bothered to try anything less substantial

    Recently caught dolosus shows no interest at all! And niether does lunula or madagascar..

    At the moment I have the following:

    1 Jumping Bean angel - doesn't touch anything.
    1 Emperor Angel

    1 sunshine butterfly (I think)
    2 vagabond butterfly's

    My next planned purchase is a Regal Angel.

    I have pretty much resided myself to the fact that I will only be able to have Gorgonian corals in the tank so I am currently looking for a few varied species of gorgonians. I will also try some different mushrooms on a trial basis to see what survives.
