    just watch ur tank dude, leather corals always seem to die for strange reasons, fish must always be watched to see if they eat corals :nono:

    Hi Vernin - no mate. Scopas tangs don't eat corals. It is really not in their nature..... perhaps there's some form of algae growing on the star polyps..... that's the only way that the scopas would be "picking" on the star polyps.....
