So, I posted a similar question on the Getting Started forum a few days ago, but I'm looking for someone who has had experience with my issue. So, I'm posting this follow-up.
I'm in the very early stages in my saltwater tank - about 3 months. I've got 2 clowns, yellow tang, yellow watchman goby. Long story short - I grew to love the shrimp and crabs that came with my lr
so I changed from wanting an aggressive tank to a community tank. Well, I still really want an eel and my wife loves the porcupine puffers. I know that the eel and the puffer will take care of most of the shrimp and crabs. I've owned eels before and never had a problem with them bothering snails or hermits - I know the goby and the clows are a risk with eels, because you just never know. I'm less familiar with porc puffers.
Any porc puffer owners have any experience with keeping them with snails, starfish, hermits, and/or urchins? How about clowns or gobies? I might be able to catch a lot of crabs and shrimp and return them before purchasing the porc, but I don't want to sacrifce my whole clean-up crew for one fish.
Any experiences that you may have to share would be helpful.
