    They are not aggressive, but they are not reef safe. It will eat corals. If you want the fish more than you want corals, then go for it -- they are really beautiful.

    Liveaquaria says "On occasion, this fish may nip at SPS and some species of polyp corals in the reef aquarium."

    IMO, they are a very beautiful fish. Having said that, there are plenty of other beautiful fish that you could get that would allow for you to keep the corals that you want. I had this same debate with myself, then decided that having the corals that I want is more important. Just my :twocents:
