I've kept a few that were fine with corals, and one that wasn't. It's hit or miss.

Flame angels and coral beauty dwarf angels are hit or miss. Some have never had any problems with them. Some go postal instantly on coral. Then there are others who have been successful for years with the same fish, until waking up one day and watching the massacre.
In general, I say that a caution fish such as this should be skipped on. I'd even give up the coral beauty in my reef tank if I could catch it after almost 2 years of being a model citizen went postal on my clams.

I keep both in my reef tank , if kept well fed they shouldn't be a issue ,
the one fish in your stock list that I'd be cautious about is the basslet he may pick on them
basslets are very aggressive fish and very territorial

My tank is mostly an LPS and softies tank and I've rarely seen the flame Angel nip at any of those. They are a beautiful fish but I don't consider them to be "centerpiece" because, at least in my experience, they don't spend a lot of time in the water column. They prefer to cruise amongst the live rock.

i never had a problem with my flame or coral beauty hiding both swim the whole water column and are very active , a big factor of them hiding is the size of the tank ,the smaller the the tank the more they will hide

Mine is in a 220 gallon tank so that's not it. He doesn't hide but just likes to cruise in and out of the rock (I have a lot of rock caves). As a result, he's not out and swimming to the same extent, as for example, the tangs do.

I have seen my yellow tang started nipping on my flower pot after about a year of being together at the same tank. The coral just slowly deteriorated even after moving it to another tank. While my flame angel has never given me any problem. That being said, I made a conclusion that fish may taste the flesh of soft corals by accident and that's when it starts liking it. Fish like to eat worms and guess what some soft corals are made of?
