I dont think he has any snails alive ( which i dont suggest because they a good help with algaes ) but no corals are harmed. I know a few who keep a copperband, and i know someone who actually invented a feeder for his! ( its really just a piece of tubing rigged up, but still cool to see him use its nose to eat )
There are some fish i would add, others i would consider, and some i just wouldnt add at all. ( like damsels, which are "reef safe" but i would not consider them "fish safe" ) I guess what it comes down to is what best fits your system.
Just to add a few more fish to this list of "reef cautionable". The Blue Face Angel, Blue Girdled Angel, Racoon Butterfly, and Coral Beauty Angel (which I have in my 58 reef).
Tank looks fabulous Jon. Awesome job.
