    I think the LPS/clams are more in danger of becoming a treat. I have recently got hold of a majestic and blue face, they are in the frag tank at the moment to check on their behaviour. So far so good.

    As Alan says, the Lps and clams are more at risk. If you feed a lot and they are contented from this point of veiw, they tend to not have to pick at the corals.

    As some one mentioned in another thread before you add it to your reef always have a plan to catch it out again if you have to. hence mine sit in the frag tank for a few months.

    So from the comments above can I assume angels are generally compatible with softies?

    I have a softie only set-up and would really like to be able to add a couple of angels to my system.

    Hi Clinton very difficult one to answer, actually depends on the individual fish. One of the theories is to keep them well fed so they dont need to pick.

    I think there is only one way to find out.. try it. Its that same as with copperbands... they either live off your coral, or frozen food or neither and die.

    Alan i think the worst that can happen is that his LPS's will eat the fish :p
