I saw one at a store today and it looked very nice. I'm in the process of upgrading to a 210 so I would like to have this guy. He was probably around 3-4".
Now I was wondering how reef safe are they? I know that with angels is a hit or miss but I wanted to know if anyone have had any first hand experience with them first?
Also Ive been reading that they are very shy and hard to get eating but if he were to be eating would it be too risk it still?

In my want I have mostly soft coral, some lps (euphellia and candy canes) and a few sps what would be at risk with this fish?
Tank mates would be
5 tangs
1 flame angel
1 blue jaw
Other small fish

210 Mixed Reef
75   Freshwater

I tried one once it was the worst fish I've ever had as far as eating and nipping corals even sps. It would advise against it.

I would say reef safe, but sooooo difficult to keep. I'd quarantine him forever in isolation.

So from hearing different view points I think it would better to not risk. Which is a shame because it's a very pretty fish
