I have two tanks, a large one (240) and a smaller one behind my desk (32). I'm thinking about consolidating the two tanks as the small one is down to a yellow watchman and pistol shrimp pair and a bunch of corals. My question is do I have any concerns about the pistol shrimp in the main tank. The following are in there now:

2 blue tangs (4")
flagfin angel ( my concern)
bi-color angel
2 per clowns
1 occ clown
diamond goby
leopard wrasse
cardinal
fire goby

on the compatibility chart it’s listed as “with caution”

it’s not listed as safe or completely not safe. So probably depends on how aggressive your angel fish is. Some people keep them together no problem. Others have problems. So it’s a gamble.

I’ve has angels and pick at my pistol shrimp on a 180 with ample space it would be just time for a smaller tank. Bright side it could be years before that happens
