The Midnight Angel is found nipping a variety of corals and sessile invertebrates including soft coral polyps, clam mantles, and zoanthids, but it does not bother any invertebrates like shrimps, snails and crabs if well fed; therefore is considered safe for reef tank but with caution.The Midnight Angel should be fed two to three times daily for its continued good health and to maintain a healthy immune system.
