Dumb question about Tangs

Sorry in advance for the dumb question. I am very new to this. Is it possible to keep tangs and corals in the same tank? Can you keep them from damaging corals as long as you feed them well?

IME, depends on the tang and the coral. My kole pecks at my soft corals. I'm pretty sure it was responsible for the demise of my colt coral and pulsing xenia.

Thank you. I am was getting mixed information from different stores as well. It looks like many of the tangs are coral safe but some will nibble on the coral.

my hippo/blonde naso/yellow tang are perfect reef inhabitants, they never bother corals and love to be fed seaweed/nori
