I had to tear my whole reef down to catch mine that almost wrecked my reef. IME they are not reef safe. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

The one I had destroyed several corals. I just had to get it out before it got all of them. LPS and soft corals were attacked and this after 4 years of good behavior first. It might not be at first but it will eventually happen. Like I said you`ll have to get all the corals and rock out to catch him.
