Thanks again for the info. So I got my puffer last night and he's the coolest. I'm a lil concerned because my talbot damsel keeps smacking him with his tail. But he's not mean at all atleast right now he's not I'm thinking I'm gonna have to remove the talbot and put him in my hospital tank for a week or to the give the puffer time to settle in. Here a few pics of him. Sorry for the bad quality he's pretty fast.

I had to take out the talbot damsel and put him in my refugium on my reef tank for a little bit until I figure out what I can do with him. I would like to be able to put him back in the tank but I don't want him to go after the puffer anymore. Here's a better picture.

I caught a small sharp nosed puffer about a month ago and he is really peaceful towards my clowns and blenny. Really cool looking little guy.

Ya he really cool. He has even gotten way more active and started eating once my talbot damsel was out of the tank

Not sure about your type but I buy my porcupine puffer clams from the supermarket 3 times a week . I just open them and sit them in the tank .

I used to get some from the LFS, a but more expensive but they were gut loaded so it was worth it. I would feed every couple of days. Usually one or two halves of the clam.
