    Question Koran Angel/mushroom compatible?

    Is a Koran Angel and Corals/mushrooms compatible? I may have to combine my 90gallon and my 180 gallon together.

    Thanks!

    I don't think so... Pomacanthus sp. angels are known to not be coral friendly.

    And Judging by what is written in Scott Michael's "Angelfishes and Butterflyfishes" book, it states:

    "The only invertabrates that larger individuals are likely to ignore are crustaceans and large, stinging sea anenomes."

    I guess you could try and see what he likes / doesn't like...

    I'd give it a try before I let one or the other go.
    i have a Bicolor angel and he leaves everything alone, same with my Idol
    picks at rocks sometimes but never touches the polyps.
    when it comes down to it temperment could be what your looking for

    Just be careful when it comes to angels and take into consideration, "what if the angel starts to nip and eat my corals". It happened to me and I had to get rid of several LPS. So I switched to a mainly SPS tank and all is well. IME

    Cool

    BRAM, pygmy angels are not really the same as large angels. centropygs are hit and miss with eating corals but you can almost bet the farm that large angels will eat any zoos,mushrooms and meaty corals like brains etc... I've been doing alot of research before I pick up my 2 angels so all my zoos and LPS are sold.
