I've been through 3 of them. Never bothered my corals, but I just cannot keep them alive either. I was going to grab a 4th but I hate seeing them die. Not sure what I'm doing or not doing because all other fish are fine.have been interested to see fox face on the caution list, didn't know that before I added one and 1) never seen him touch a coral and 2) rarely seen him graze. So good news bad news....
I have a fox face and he is a model citizen in the tank and has never touched any of my corals. I think any fish with caution could go either way, if they are well fed then you stand a better chance of them leaving your coral alone but again every fish is different and one that doesn't nip corals for one might for someone else.Recently we talked about "reef safe" angelfish but today I want to expand the conversation to all fish that are considered reef safe, but with caution. Thanks to @Gtinnel for the QOTD idea. So let's talk about these fish!
1. Do you keep "Reef Safe with Caution" fish? If so what fish and what's your experience with them been?
2. What would you say are some good fish to take a chance on and some that are a bad bet?

I have a flame hawk and several cleaner shrimp and it never gives them botherI have a flame angel who is very cool,
So much so that I want a Potters angel when they become available again.
I still want a Flame hawk, I had one before and I think I will try one again although I'll have to get a life insurance policy on my shrimp.
I had a Humma Humma many years ago in a predator tank and never thought of keeping it in a reef tank... so tempted, it's my favorite fish of all time.
