Head over to the Large Reef Forums; there is someone there keeping a Queen in their SPS reef and has had some pretty good success, and the Queen is pretty big.

Edit: Here's the thread:

One of the more destructive species but you never know, I would think for every model citizen there are a lot more coral nippers it is pretty much their nature to sample sessile inverts.

I have one in my FOWLR. I have about 6 or 7 pieces of coral with him. 2 SPS, 3-4 favia, 3 chalices. My queen would eat anything soft leathers, zoas, hammer, etc...
From my experience my emp was much more destructive to coral than my queen but every fish is different.
