Ive heard that as far as angelfish go, bandit angelfish can relatively safe for reef tanks. Does anyone have successful experience, or unsuccessful attempts at keeping a bandit in a reef?

 

ive heard the same for goldflakes, so if anyone happens to have info on that, Id be happy to hear, also.

No one has had personal experience, or even just heard of experiences of bandits, or goldflakes in reef tanks?

Awesome, thank you so much! Im going to have everything in it too, so I was was worried I'd have SOMETHING they'd want to eat.

Mine are bigger than an inch though, but hopefully that wouldn't make much of a difference.

I used to have a Bandit Angel in a SPS LPS reef, no problems.

Fantastic! I'm so relieved to hear about all these positive experiences! If I just heard one, I'd still be worried, but this many good, and no bad, definitely points to it being a theme, and not just a fluke:)

thanks so much for you guys' input! Im still interested in hearing of anyone else's experiences, positive or negative!

I purchased a baby gold flake angel (a gorgeous fish) but he ate every type of coral I had....I had to tear apart the tank to get him out....I will not try again.
