I've got a GSP and a Figure 8 puffer that I've had at sw levels for 6 months. They are doing great and aren't real aggressive. They even leave the snails and hermits alone!

My GSP shares a 29g with a very small snowflake moray. SG is 1.025 and the puffer is very healthy. He's about 3" right now. A 55 would be plenty of room for a GSP. They are fin nippers so you don't want to put them in with anything that can't move fast. If your LFS has them in FW, you'll want to acclimate them over a period of a couple of weeks to full salt. These fish are very hardy when kept in SW. When kept in FW, they seem to be very susceptible to ich.

2 in a 55gal is pushing it. They get more aggressive as they age. I've heard of ones that will not tolerate any other creature in their tank.
