Default Blueface Angelfish VS Koran Angelfish

I just got a ~ 4" Koran Angelfish (what I was told) but I don't see any
major difference between the two.


Have anybody has any experience with this fish on a reef tank?


TIA

Ruben

Default Blueface Angelfish VS Koran Angelfish

I did a google search on both types of fish, both are in the same family
with similar traits.

Koran Angel, (Semicircle Angel)
Juvenile specimens are primarily what are seen in the trade, adults are much
less common. Juveniles are dark overall with alternating white and blue
semicircular bars. This is a great aquarium fish that will thrive in a
well-maintained tank. It will eat a wide variety of aquarium fare, including
algae growing on the aquarium glass and decor. One of the hardiest of all
angels for the aquarium! Adults of this species are green overall, with body
scales that have blue edges. All the fins, except the pectoral fins, have
blue margins. The dorsal and anal fins of very large adults have filaments.
At around 5" and larger they begin to take on the blue-green "adult" color.
sizes

Small/Around 1/2"-1
Medium/Around 1"-2"
Large/Around 3"-4"


Reef Aquarium Compatibility
May eat some soft corals and nip at large Polyped stony corals,
zooanthids and clams. Smaller specimens are less risky.

Blueface Angelfish
A spectacular Angel, this species can do well if his needs are met. Making
sure the Blueface Angel is boss of the tank will go a long way in helping
him adapt. Initially shy, the Blueface can become bold over time, but is
less aggressive than many angels. A spectacular Angel, this species can do

can become bold over time, but is generally less aggressive than many
angels. The adults of this incredible species have body scales with blue
centers and yellow edges, a yellow dorsal and caudal fin, and a black spot
at the posterior base of the dorsal. The face is blue, with small yellow
spots. The Blueface Angel should be provided with plenty of swimming space,
as well as a number of suitable hiding places and kept only with relatively
peaceful tankmates. The blue-faced angelfish has lived over 21 years in
captivity in one public aquarium.

Yeah, I read that before posting but still they do look pretty same to me.
I was hoping to get somebody's input on actual behavior experience with
them, on how aggresively they nip at coral.

Thanks for your reply.
