Corals should not be a problem. Smaller fish and any mobile inverts will be lunch.

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

Groupers are not known to eat snails or hermits. They are live fish and shrimp eaters. The only caution I would give is the amount of waste they produce. With good tank husbandry you should be ok.
