    i got a lemonpeel angel the other day as i have always dwarf angels. i was really chuffed when he fed at the LFS, and even more so when i had it eating flakes, mysis and blood worm. indeed he ate just about anything i gave him, including a whack of zoas. so with great regret i parted with the fella a day later and gave him to a client. i snapped a few pics of him in their tank today so here are a few shots.

    atleast my zoas are safe for now...

    aw.. cute little guy.. Sometimes I think Zoas are just not worth it.. but then again these guys will go for LPS as well?

    generally once an agle shows a liking to fleshy corals they will take all sorts of different corals. this client only has a few leathers in the tank so for now he is in a happy home:)

    Lemonpeel's are known nippers, but like you said I think some fish are worth more than a bunch of zoas.

    Go get that dwarf back crispin!!! Its nicer than a bunch of old zoas any day :p
