this is making the assumption that there will be no inverts in the tank, just coral and fish;
avoid parrots, some puffers, some angels may eat corals,.....
actually if you don't have any inverts in the tank, the choices are wide open, even more so if you stick with predator fish like lions, eels, groupers, etc. that should have no real interest in coral.
I recently rolled the dice on a beautiful Fiji Puffer thinking my main concern would be my shrimp.
Nope, he leaves the shrimp alone, but I think he has eaten all my nassarius snails and he totally decimated two colonies of zoas pretty much overnight.
I'm slowly transitioning to fish only and a separate reef tank.
