Update on my 65 gallon: Puffer Question

So the 65 gallon has been up for 6 weeks now since I bought it and moved it. I added the Midas blenny about 10 days ago, just thought I would post some pictures. Sorry they are kind of blurry, my midas is pretty active and doesn't sit still for pictures.

I plan on adding a flame hawkfish soon, but I had a question about blue spotted puffers. Are they compatible with clownfish? I don't think it would go after the blenny, hawkfish, or the bicolor dwarf angel I want to get eventually. I just didn't know if it would go after my two percula clowns. Has anyone on here kept these puffers? If so, how difficult of a fish was it to keep?

I really dont think so. But they produce alot of waste and are prone to ick. I started out with puffers. They are great and can be hand fed and will let you pet them.

fish are friends not food

You don't think they are compatible with clowns? I know some of the larger puffers are definitely not compatible, I just wasn't sure about the smaller spotted puffers. They are listed on some online sites are docile, liveaquaria.com's compatibility chart says they are, but I don't always trust those charts. I wanted to hear from someone who had kept them, I know they can be messy, I have a large CUC for that, my nitrates hover around 0-5ppm.

Ok, I appreciate the advice. How hard are they to care for? I have heard they are not always hardy.
