    Hello, I apologize in advance if this question has already been asked. I was wondering if it would be possible to put a porcupine and golden puffer with my mapa puffer in a 150 gallon tank.

    I currently have a 60 Gal FOLR tank with a Blue spotted puffer. Am I able to have another Dwarf puffer like a Valentini Puffer or a Orange Tail Fiji to my tank with out issues?

    Is the Valentini puffer the only puffer that is considered to be reef safe?

    I have a very tall tank. It's 30 inches by 20 in. by 18 inch. I am wanting to get a dog faced puffer fish. The LFS employee said he should be fine in the tank. Note the puffer is only 6-7 inches. Do you think he will be alright? He definitely has enough room.
