Non-Invert, Coral Safe Fish?

Hi! Exactly what the title says. I want a fish that will eat inverts (i wont have any), but will also be good in a 66 gallon reef and be peaceful with nano fish! Ideas??

My humu trigger is fine. Wouldn't trust it with inverts, but leaves corals alone. Seems they tend to be more docile if purchased when they're small.

In a 66? We actually did make a purchase along these lines today-an big engineer goby

Whoops, didn't notice the size of your tank with the 66g. Triggers are out of the question then.

As for the Niger trigger in the 55, that is way too small a tank. They are a large fish and require much more swimming room even at a juvenile stage.
