Pufferfish and corals?

Do pufferfish eat corals? I've got mostly frogspawn, torch and one carpet anemone. Does it depend on the fish or do they all eat this stuff? I was thinking of a porcupine puffer.

I have a green spotted puffer and he dose not eat my zoas, yellow star polyps, mushrooms, or xenia, but he dose not even care about my starfish so idk. I say he will most likely be OK with coral, but if I had the choice I would get rid of my puffer because he makes me nervous.

Puffers are not reef safe. You will never know if they might take a bite out of corals. I heard its a good idea to try corals that taste bad.. I can't remember which coral taste bad though.
Kind Regards,
