Tank raised puffer.

So i love invertabrates and stuff like that. Buuuttt i also like puffers. I was wondering if there is such thing as a tankraised or even better tank bred puffer that was raised from tiny on bloodworms and krill and mysis shrimp and all that stuff? That way itd be safe for inverts and corals.

No matter whether it is tank raised or not a puffer will be a puffer. If they have the opportunity they will chow on your inverts. Just feeding it certain doesn't decrease the chance it will eat inverts. Every fish has different habits. So while one person has a model citizen puffer, someone else could get one that destroys everything.

Nothing bred by hobbyist, but I recall there is a market niche where certain puffers are being bred and raised as a food source. Several thousands of gallons of water is probably needed for this to happen.
