Most snails in the hobby should be quite harmless in that regard.

If the brain coral is dead, there could be a chance, but unlikely to a live brain coral.

My snails started munching on my dying brain coral, but only after it was halfway gone.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
