The Flame Angel is an ICONIC Marshall islands fish that dazzles the spectator. The meld of coloration along with mix of stripes is no wonder this is one of the most sought after of the SMALL ANGEL crowd. They are known to nip at corals SOMETIMES, many report ZERO issues. Our Staff Experience is COMPLETELY MIXED. Often times we find Xenia and LPS are gone after, all varieng from little damage to well I guess I can't keep that coral in there. In short its a crap shoot with this fish and coral. Be Warned.
