I've got one in a 10gal reef with some candy cane, mushrooms, zoos, and ricordeas.
So far it hasn't bothered any of them and is about as active/shy as the peppermint shrimp in my other tanks.
I've heard of them eating some corals so your experience might be different than mine.
If you're just doing a FOWLR then go for it.
The camels are more interesting looking than the peppermints IMO.

it tells you right in the description what it may nip on:

Quote:
but may nip at colonial anemones, disc anemones, and soft leather corals. It generally leaves bubble coral and stinging anemones alone.

I have one in my tank, which has about 60lbs of LR, and Zoo Polyps.

So not a full on reef tank, but He doesn't hurt the Polyp's. He (As well as all the shrimp) walk on the polyps, but it doesn't hurt em.
