    Well the trigger preety much keeps to itself and doesn't pick at the corals, however on the other hand the lemonpeel is a sly little bugger who always has to pick at everything, here there everywhere. He has demolished most of my tongue corals and my coral garden however many of the others still in there he has left alone. Its funny that the dealer told me that they will be fine with all corals... I think he needs to read his books ;D

    Do you guys think that its probably not worth trying to put one in. I was thinking a metallic blue crocea or maxima clam in about the 5-6 inch range?

    Thoughts and thanks for all the help!!

    My suggestion would be to not add a clam. It is a natural food for the angel fish in the wild and it could become a very expensive experiment. The choice is entirely yours though :)

    No!!!!!!! Don't even think about placing a clam in with an Angel!!! The clam will end up dead within no time at all...If i were you i would have gotten rid of the Lemonpeel along time ago(clams make much better pets)IMO-unless you have a fish only tank forget about the Angels. And to find out that you lost a Tongue etc. would make me very upset.

    The best time to remove the Angel is at night time!
