I`m thinking you`ll need at least a 125 or over for those two. Also what else is in the tank

I had a blue spot and southern puffer and well it at first they were trying to fake each other out and after a week they shook fins and were all good after that. Guess it just depends on the puffers themselves.

I have a dogface and a porc that have been together for about 4 months now and have never had any problems at all.

Good luck

IMO in a 75 you will be asking for trouble down the road when they grow and if they even get along. The toby puffers would be a good choice.

I have a Starry Puffer and I'm hoping to get a Porcupine Puffer so I have I don't have any issues. I have a small 55 Gallon tank but definitely will be upgrading when the start growing.
