Gobiodon Okinawae


I have a Gobiodon Okinawae in my 55g reef aquarium that I have had for about 2 months. I have noticed that sometimes it takes "bites" out of my Acropora spp. and just recently I noticed it taking "bites" out of my Acanthastrea spp. I was wondering if these corals feed on on corals. I love my Acan a lot and paid a pretty penny for it(it's a wild caught specimen). Will these Gobies feed on corals and if so how destructive are they? Thank you in advance.

PS-great article in reefkeeping of these guys!
