    Does anyone out there have any experience with Semicircle Angle in a coral tank.I would like to know how far I can go with my semi.I sold my corals but am regretting it.I tried a threadfin and a semi to start with but I miss my coral.I had bits of zoos and other polyps left that were starting to spread but the threadfin dallad the zoos yesterday so he is doing aptasia duty in the sump until he gets a home.I really would like to keep my semi though as he is a Durban caught specimen.

    A very WARM WELCOME to MASA, Undergravel! Great to have you on-board!

    I have a semi angel.... And mine does not go anywhere close to my corals. My butterflies on the other hand - hang around my soft-corals every now and again....

    And my raccoon butterfly - ate my whole poscillopora....... (sp?)

    Go through Scuba's thread and see what the semi demolished in his his 2M tank .... That is why the bugger is in my 6 foot now with no corals and 400 km's away from Scuba's braai stand

    Hi undergravel, I've had a semi with corals and softies for some time without any probs. I then put in a new coral and he could not stay away. I doubt it will make it and the semi is now sumped and I'm looking for a new home for him. It looks like the luck of the draw with the types of corals they like and the particular specimen you have.

    I've put my semi back in the main tank and also the thread fin.I've been checking out FOWLR tanks on Youtube and there are some stunning tanks.My semi hasn't touched any inverts.Besides he's tool nice to get rid of.He does go dilly for nori.

    sooner or later it will chow your corals, mine completely removed all zoos within a year and then started on other softies and lps within 2 years. She didn`t touch any sps though.
