Only if you don't train them properly and provide them with plenty of toys.

Actually, if you put your head in the tank or had an underwater microphone, I wouldn't be surprised if you could hear them munching on the rocks, but I never heard anything.
I only asked because when snorkeling or diving, a lot of times I can hear them crunching the rocks... wondered if that was amplified in an aquarium kinda like a pistol shrimp snap

Do they go after your corals ?

Generally no, but hard to say for sure. I sometimes saw him poking around the Turbinaria and some other LPS corals, but I could never tell if he was actually eating polyps or just poking around and causing them to retract. A lot of the LPS corals were not doing so well when I had him, but I think that was the start of the period of 0 nitrate, phosphate, and iodine that killed most of them, so I can't say for sure if he contributed to their demise. I definitely never saw him messing with SPS corals. I might be tempted to try another one, but they're pretty expensive. I know reeftopia has had several and never had a problem with them.

That looks awesome Shawn! What coral is that?
Don’t remember, I believe I found the name of it once. It is an Australian coral Imi believe. I bought it as a no name colony.

Here is the link to what I believe it might be.
