I lucked out with my coral beauty, but heard it was a 50/50 chance. I had him before I even started adding coral.Now I have a toadstool, frogspawn, blastos, acans, duncans, trumpets, mushrooms. He hasn't touched any of it in 2 years. Knock on wood. Since your just getting into your reef tank if you really wanted to chance it I would start with something cheap. But if he does nip on your coral u got to go through the whole process of netting him and bringing him back to ur LFS
. Roll the dice, it's up to you.
