Coral Baeuty in Reef?

Is the coral beauty a reef safe fish? Some sites suggest that they are and some say they pick on soft and hard corals... anyone with any experience keeping them peacefully alongside mushrooms, zoos, brain, tree, anemones and leather fingers without them making a meal of any?

Technically, they are reef safe: They don't eat corals, but they may "nip" while grazing for algae. It's just incidental contact. Keeping them fed will help reduce this tendency.

i have one in my 55g. its a kool fish. i think it would do fine in a reef tank. but it does "nip" around a little. mine just mostly eats the algae off the rocks and glass.

yeah its a present for my bro's 55 Gal reef... so far he's got all the corals I've listed in the original post plus 2 percs, 1 yellow tang, 1 royal gramma and 2 firefish... so that's why i have to be really sure... dont want the present to start ravaging his blooming reef... like a ticking timebomb... heh heh...
