dwarf puffers

could you guys recommend any smaller puffers (if any) that would be suitable for 30 -> 50 gallon tank. I've been considering adding another tank to my collection, got a 15g reef upgrading to a 30 soon and a 140g tropical currently.

Have no idea why I'm getting drawn to puffers, I've never kept one.

Looks like a leopard or saddle valentini will work in a 30

Should the Bennett's and valenti be kept on their own or would things like clowns or damsels be ok with them?

I have a pair of clowns and a few other fish with my bennet's. He is not aggressive at all, I just can't have any inverts I wouldn't keep damsels anyway because they are mean, but that's just me...

I am just thinking about this, still to clear it with the Mrs and set up my new reef so it would be another 6months to a year before I even consider buying a new tank for a puffer but thanks for the help, it's much appreciated.

No doubt I will be back asking questions at a later date
