Puffer Selection

I have a 55gal with 80lbs of live rock and 2 small clown fish, several snails and crabs. I would like to add a puffer to the tank. What species can I put in a tank this size?

Sharp nose puffers would do really well in the tank...but they'd mack hard on the inverts (shrimps, crabs, even feather dusters, starfish, etc). There isn't a single puffer that is 'reef safe'.

We, as a people, know so much more about outer space than we do about our own oceans. This lack of knowledge can very well spell the dangers that lay in wait for us.

The oceans surely would swallow us before a rock comes down to smite the planet of it's life.
