    Hi all

    Does anybody have or know of a Coral friendly fish list?

    I am asking as I want to start my Marine tank soon and I would like to have corals and fish, but I was wondering if there is a list of fish that are Coral friendly?

    Hey Mavrick

    I keep Tangs , Clowns , Wrasses , Green Chromis , Mandarin and Comet with my Corals and no problems. Stay away from the larger Angels and Butterflies.

    I have blue tail damsel, 2 egg laying occellaris clowns, huge malu nennie, six line wrasse, blue cheek sleeper goby, 2 fire gobies, foxface, bi colour blenny, blue streak cleaner wrasse. they all dont touch corals and are amazing fish, also have a lots of delicate corals(brains, hammer) and boxing shrimp - do not get a boxing shrimp, they are too aggressive for smaller fish!!

    I agree also that dwarf angels nip but not kill the coral. But remember that nipping causes the coral to close. For example a pin cushion will stay closed as long as it is being irritated by a fish as was my experience
