Rock Beauty Angel

Would like to here of people's experiences with the Rock Beauty Angel.
My local Petco has one right now that has been there for about 2 weeks, and unlike most of their other fish, looks very healthy, alert, and ich free. Its about 2 1/2-3".
I'm considering adding it to my 180 reef. I do have a fair amount of sponge growing, and only have 4 other fish. Yellow tang, Kole tang, Copperband Butterfly, and a Maroon Goldbanded clown that usually doesn't stray too far from his Nem.
I would like to know what type of corals it may pick at. I'm not too concerned about any sampling of any corals, except for my larger LPS.
Any input will be appreciated, to make this decision, Thanks.

When I had one he was a very mild tempered fish and wouldn't pick at any corals if he was fed properly overall a good fish to add in last though because with age comes aggression (like all the others!)

Do you think it would be OK, in a 180? It's small now, but I mean down the road...

Not much SPS, besides types of Montipora, but really large Wall Hammer, Torch, and Pagoda...
Thanks again saltwater, . Can't get this fish out of my head!!! I just don't see them too often.

Thanks for the reassurance, I'll have to go see if he's still there tomorrow. Been there for awhile, and surprisingly looked really healthy and alert. Felt bad for him, in that little holding tank, but just couldn't pull the trigger.
