    I was reading up on elegance corals on live aquaria and it recons they can sting their handlers, so it got me thinking. If they can sting their handlers then they should be able to hold their own against butterfly's and angels in a fwlro tank?
    It would be nice to have a couple corals in the tank that won't get chowed.
    Thoughts?

    Elegance, hammer, frogspawn and torch corals all pack a sting but that will not deter a fish from eating it. Anemones also sting yet you get fish that eat it

    Ja fish still chow them, why not just add some schrooms or xenia. Not to many fish bother them

    Elegance corals are sensitive so would you really want to make sure the tanks parameters are good just for 1 coral?
