    You can try green star polyps or a Colt.

    How old is your tank by the way?

    I've never heard of a Damsel eating soft coral. I would wait to catch him in the act before you condemn him

    Sometimes they will melt and then months later they will pop-up out of no where. This has happened to me a few times in the past.
