Coral Beauty in a reef.

Everything I read says a Coral Beauty can be a problem in a reef tank. I have a 45 gal tank with two clowns, a 6 line wrasse, a fire shrimp and a CUC. I plan on adding a diamond goby and I am leaning towards three Blue Green Chromis. I would however like to have one center piece fish. Pretty much had my mind made up that a coral beauty was not going to be it because I want to make this a reef tank. I would love to hear what all of you with a coral beauty in reef tanks have fared.

I've had one in my reef for 6 months and it only nipped at my colt once or twice. Never ever touched anything else. All my corals are growing fast and even my colt is getting huge. I think it is a great fish. Always on the move and highly energetic. My favorite fish thus far.

It's 50/50 with any dwarf angel. Some may totally ignore all corals, some might eat everything in sight and some might be good for a few years then decide to munch them all.
