Marine bettas have fairly small mouths, mainly shrimp would be the issue. What type of filefish are you considering, many kinds you know?

The easiest filefish is the bristle/leatherjacket/aiptasia eating filefish, but they are mottled tan/brown...most filefish are not very big so hopefully you don't have a pred. tank

They were fine in reefs for me (had 4), but each fish is different. Reef-safe isn't really a reliable term

Technically - reef safe should mean coral and invert safe. Many people just assume it means coral safe. Whenever I ask about a fish I no longer say is it reef safe- I say is it coral and invert safe. Inverts are an essential part of a reef tank and while they are cheap to replace- it gets expensive over time.
