Coral Beauty reef/invert safe?

I've seen many reef tanks that have been successful keeping a coral beauty, yet it is a type of angel fish, right? It is such a nice looking fish and I'd love to have one if possible. Anyone want to share any horror or success stories with them? Cautions/warinings I should know? Thanks!

I've had one in a reef with inverts for almost a year without a problem.

I have also had one in my reef tank for a while with no problems. I don't think anyone can tell you a definate answer on this species. There are people who have had success and some who have not. The best that can be given is it's 50/50. Good luck

Same here. There is always a potential though...you'll just have to watch him. Most of the dwarf angels are OK in a reef tank, but there is always the occasional criminal who will slink around eating your corals.

i have head they are about the safest of the dwarf angels for a reef tank. the flame angel is also fairly safe but not as safe as the CB.
