Hello,

I would not keep large Angels in tanks below 400 to 500 gallons. I have an adult imperator in a 660g tank (but it was allready in, when I took over the care of the tank - its not mine - and I would never have added it to the tank; in the beginning he ate all soft corals I put in the tank. After some time and good feeding he stopped this behaviour and I could say he now is allmost reef safe (only trying someime "new entrants"). But I think its much worse in smaller tanks and they simply outgrow them to fast and if they "do not know what to do the whole day long" and are not fed well they start eating corals...

regards

Markus
