Default Keeping Angels in a Reef Tank

Just curious on the number of users keeping an Angel in their reef tank.

Now that I have my tank I am thinking about adding one.

Current corals list is: scoly, doughnuts, acans, hammers and torches.

I made a post about this before, but just wanted to see if opinions have changed. Also, changing my desired fish from a Sumatra red coral beauty to a potters.

I have a 100g mixed reef and keep a flame angel. She leaves all the corals alone with the exception of the GSP which she nips at. I wish that she would eat it more to help keep it in check!

The dwarf angel I had LOVED lps. It was delish! Acans, Brains, donuts, anything fleshy. Sympodium, Candycane, etc..

Up to you if you want to risk it.

Regal and Majestic Angel in my softie/LPS/anemone reef. Debating about getting an Emperor Angel as well.

I had a Flame Angel in my old 90-gallon SPS tank, and it nipped ALL the SPS. At least it didn't have a favorite, so it never killed anything, but PE was terrible.

I've got a flame angel in mine but it has only been there for a few months so its still too early to know if it will become a coral nipper.
