Yes... it's entirely safe to use around corals and around your fish.

Remember to use it sparingly. Common sense but you never know someone will squirt a Gallon of it and say....Dah, I thought it was safe

Peppermint shrimp always do the trick for me and they are cheap. I dislike putting my hands and odd chemicals in the tank if I can avoid it. Joe's Juice and other similar products work fine on the ones you can see and get to but there are lots and lots you can't.
