Questions about huma triggers

ok, so they obviously aren't reef safe, I got that part.

BUT! what makes them not reef safe? is it just because they eat smaller fish and inverts or will they try to eat corals as well?

Just curious.

My huma sometimes messes with the feather duster that I used to have. It nipped the feather duster until there isn't anymore tentacles on the feather duster. The picaso trigger isn't a violent trigger IME, but will surely nip on your live rocks, inverts, corals etc.

Both.... However they are more likely to eat inverts than corals.

When they get bigger, they will eat the corals, dusters and any small inverts.

Not only that but when they get bigger they will rearrange our tank.
