The Mighty Bird Wrasse!

I just added a really big male Bird Wrasse to my tank and MAN is it cool. The thing is huge and full of character. Watching it eat is a trip, I'll feed it a silverside that it catches in its long beak then it smashes it by opening and closing its beak or it will literally smash the silverside on a rock to pulverize it before it swallows it. This may be the favorite fish I've had.

Is the lunar reef safe? I've heard no but I've also heard the bird isn't and so far he's great...

if you ask me any fish that grows over 6 inch they claim their all not reef safe it's more with caution IMO
they claim its not but haven't seen any issues other than munching on snails and hermits
leaves coral alone but be careful if you have clams
I'd trust my huma huma trigger in my reef if I had to he is the most mellow fish I've seen with teeth
