    I like the elk horn coral rock, similar to pukani it gives you a natural reef look from the get-go.

    Yup...Xenia. iPhone pic with no color correction makes it look more purple.

    I do have a sump, skimmer and return pump as well as a Koralia pump in the DT for flow.

    Actually...I built it up that way somewhat unintentionally. There's only one small piece that may actually be elkhorn or elkhorn like.

    Looks great!
    But be warned, GSP grows upward on a rock very quickly. It will take over if you are not really careful.

    Some Dwarf Angels can.

    I have:
    Coral Beauty - no problem.
    Bicolor - Nips at the tips of really frilly ones.

    Keep in mind, Corals get munched on in the wild. Normal.
    If you have a ton of corals, and just a few risky fish, you can live with some munching.

    I think they just go after the polyps. I suppose if thy nip enough the coral could die.

    Depends on the amount.
    In my case, it caused the coral to pull in the frilly tips a bit.

    They can. There are no rules when it comes to angels. Except for the reef safe genicanthus angels (watanabei, Japanese swallowtail, bellus).

    One of my thoughts have been to have riskier fish in this tank since the softies are all inexpensive and fast growing. So, if they end up nipping at the softies, it’s not really painful.

    This little guy has been fun to have in our tank. He's a dwarf flame back angel. He's constantly on the move darting in and out from the holes in the rocks and picking at everything. image.jpeg
