All depends on fish I have seen a full blown reef tank kept sucessfully for multiple years with 2 large triggers in it. I would not recomend doing it but can be done don't jump down the kids throat abt not being "reef safe" if these fish are doing ok with the introduction of corals then keep going!!

Oh not trying to offend him what so ever. I just dont want the guy to waste tons of money loading up his tank with corals. Imo im giving a much needed head up. Fish can be great for years, but then one day you have to get rid of them.

Sorry about your puffer man, that sucks.

As for advice..i say a bit more rock, providing that your tank doesnt go through the floor lol
