I have a bennet's sharpnose puffer in my growing reef, it's hit and miss with mine who is fully grown. I have heard they are fine when young and years later can develop a taste so your never sure! I buy tiny frags first to see whether he eats them so it doesn't cost me too much. So far he loves polyps and most recently Duncan's but leaves my other softies alone. Hope that helps...

Most Puffers are not reef safe. They would eat your crabs shrimp or any other inverts more then likely. There are some that have a (caution) labeled to them but why take the chance.
