stay with me for a second while I give you some background.
I've always been a fan of aggressive tanks. I just started a 110 gallon fowlr
about 3 months ago with the intention of getting a zebra moray. I got about 100lbs of lr
.com and it came with so many cool crabs, shrimp, and stars, that I couldn't part with them. I decided to do a community tank. I bought a serpent star, 2 clowns, 1 yellow tang, and 1 yellow watchman gobie so far.
Now, I'm back to digging an eel - possibly a more reasonably sized snowflake. My chick (that's my wife, who is very understanding with my sexist nicknames) has been very understanding with the THOUSANDS that I've spent on this hobby so far and the only fish she ever loved was a Porcupine Puffer. I know they are not reef safe and I know the eel will pick off all my crabs and shrimp anyway.
I realize that the eel may take a bite out of the goby or the clowns depending on its personality, but my question (finally) is about the Porcupine Puffer. I've read mixed comments from folks saying how they are very peaceful with other fish and many have no problems with them sharing space with clowns and gobies - which surprises me. Then, I read things about how aggressive this fish is and that it will eat many smaller fish and even hermit crabs and snails.
Can someone give me some feedback? Will the addition of a Porcupine Puffer mean that I need to get rid of my gobie, my clowns, and my starfish as I suspect? I'm assuming the tang would be okay and that with a puffer, eel, and tang I'm pretty near my stocking limit.
Thanks - all. I'm so undecided with what I want in my tank now it's out of control.
