Butterfly Fish: Are Any Reef Safe??

I love so many of the butterfly fish, and would love to get one for my tank.

Does anyone know if there are any Reef Safe Butterfly Fish?? Everyone I seem to find is not reef safe and i would like to have some corals and possibly some anemone so I would need one that would be okay with those things. Thanks.

I really don't think any will be totally "reef safe". Many you will find listed as "with caution" but that will also depend on your ability to keep them well fed and preoccupied. Also, you will need to take into consideration your tank size as that will limit what can go in and what could be expected of them temperament wise. A big fish in a small tank will be stressed and wreak havoc.
