All still need tanks bigger then 20 gallons. Also they are agressive so not many tank mates...

I would say the saddleback could go into a 30... Not a 20. Jmo. And they would be the best for small tanks.

A green spotted puffer would do fine in the tank most likely with good filtration. He would have to be in it alone though. I got mine at walmart in freshwater and raised him up to salt water and hes doing fine in my 30 along with a blue damsel.

Wait a minute! You managed to get a freshwater fish to survive in a saltwater tank? How?

Slowww acclimation. That puffer is a fish that lives in brackish water, so they can be converted to salt if done correctly. You can also convert mollies, ghost shrimp, certain gobies etc

Green spotted puffer is a brackish fish. They make the move to salt easily after proper acclimation.
