I think it tends to be a case by case thing. My angels are over 10 years old and still don't pick on the coral. I have a black tail that likes to nip, but doesn't do any lasting damage. If you have a good feeding regime, I think they are less likely to pick. Some angels, like lemon peel angels, can really be a nightmare on coral. Everybody has their own story, so it's a chance. I have seen many people put trigger fish in their reef tanks, something I wouldn't tend to do, but they have found them to be reef safe in their situations.

I'd recommend a duncan. They are great to watch, hardy, and you can feed them mysis if you want. Watching them eat is one of my favorite things to do.
