I had a dogface puffer, put 100#'s of rock from another tank in the 100 gal. he was in. The rock had assorted mushrooms that I had been watching reproduce for months. He destroyed them, thus "dog" as I called him,found a new home quickly.

IMO its always a gamble.. different fish will have different temperaments.. regarding aggressive species generally anything that can fit into their mouth should be considered as food, whether that be a trigger, lionfish or puffer..

Here is my dogface, he is pretty friendly with his current tankmates. But as of now, no live rock, only bones

IMO no puffersin a reef tank...
Anemones need a mature tank with proper lighting and great water quality... tell us about your tank.
