    Hey i would like to buy a green tip torch coral but I've got a semicircle angelfish and a blue ringed angelfish. They ate my candy cane so I'm scared to get it and it becomes lunch!

    It will be a hit or miss but my gut feeling is that it will become food.

    If it ate the candy cane, the the torch will most likely be too much of a temptation for them.
    The pomacanthus angels are known coral eaters. If you want a mixed reef then rather remove those two.

    Depends on the fish, some have a taste for softies, some clams, other lps. As the angels get older they will become more prone to eating corals.

    Most likely.
    You could always try a small torch, like one head or so and see how it goes.
    What size are the fish?
