Mixing valenti puffer with corals.

Can it be done? My mate has a 40g setup and has a valenti puffer which he bought while I was with him, even though I warned him I have heard of them nipping at corals. Although so far (2 weeks) the fish hasn't been seen eating any corals and they are all doing fine looking healthy. Is it possible that it won't touch corals at all? Or will it eventually begin nipping? I'm curious because they are one of my favorites and it would be a spectacular addition to my in progress reef tank thanks

I am making a 46g reef. I am a huge puffer fanatic, but everything I have read suggest any puffer not being coral and invert safe. Not so long ago, I read about a fellow's puffer (valentini?) eating his coral.

I want a puffer my reef as well, but it might be a costly mistake. It might take Weeks or months before an attack might happen, or it may never happen. Roll the dice..
Kind Regards,
