Goatfish

So my wife wants to get a bicolor goatfish. I have tons of small brittle stars living in the rocks and one with about a quarter size disc. I also have a 3/4 inch two spotted goby that I am a little worried about. Anyone have any experience with these and did they kill off your starfish population? What about the snails and hermits? I see mixed things on the net and would like some first hand experience from someone. Thanks.

Hope you have a large tank since they are commonly 8" and rather robust. Your entire tank is a buffet for this fish as it will consume any and all crustaceans, brittle stars and serpent stars, mollusks, small fish, etc. I advise against it.
