Yes, he will most likely eat your corals within a few days.

I dont think triggers eat corals.................... he may nip at them because they are curious, but he wont eat them for food. They eat shrimp, clams, squid, that type of stuff. Still, a 20 for any size isnt enough.

They'll definitely nip at corals like mad - but beyond that, triggers are very active swimmers and will make a mess of anything in there - if you have corals stacked on LR, they will hit the dirt, no doubt.

I have a trigger with corals. Theyre all fine. Not positive about huma humas, they'll nip out of curiosity. Not for food.
