Are coral beauty and flame angelfish safe in a reef tank?

I've read these fishes are hit and miss. What are the chances? I don't have any corals yet but do plan on keeping some later on. I have mushrooms and some polyps right now. Will they nip at them? Not sure if I should try or not, I really hate trying to catch fish if they need to come out.
Just love the colours of the fishes!!

No guarantees there either way. Some have had them for years, and all of a sudden...

In my experience they are not coral safe. They almost wrecked my reef yrs ago. I`ve taken the NO ANGELS pledge. On the other hand I`ve heard of others not having any problems so all I can give you is my experience.
