Researching fish

I am trying to make a deal on a Osaka 41 gallon tank & am trying to figure out a fish list. There is a clown, damsel, snail, crabs, crushed coal & some live rock in the tank now.
Been up and running for a little less than a year.

I am looking for reef compatible & I keep seeing on certain web sites reef safe (with caution)
Hmmmmm..... Can someone tell ms a little more bout this?
I have a few fish that I really like, but they all seam to say "with caution"

Hi there. i believe some of those reef with caution fish will nip at lps and soft corals. thats what i've read anyway.

i'm in the same boat. Looking to round out stocking but alot of the fish are caution or my tank isnt big enough.

Have you looked at blennys and gobys? they are reef safe and very cool fish

Yeah, I looked at the hawkfish, but they eat shrimp... I thought I read somewhere they eat inverts & since there are emerald crabs... That may not work?

The puffer eats invertabrae though. Do you have any of those? i don't, maybe i can get one. they are cool looking and it says its peaceful.

The pygmy angel is another good choice. Says only eats LPS.

decisions decisions...lol

True, but I was told that if the invert was too big the puffer would not try to eat it & with this being the smaller puffer, hoping it would be OK... 2 LFS gave told me this, however, I would rather confirm here
We do want a pistol shrimp to go with our future goby, for our future tank.... If this deal goes thru
