For the most part, dottybacks are as tough as nails ... though often a little nasty with other fish (and certainly with each other).

Some can be pretty aggressive. I forget which type it was, but I read something where they described the Pseudo as not just attacking another fish, but disemboweling it.

I pulled a Neon years ago after days of chasing every fish in the tank. It was non- stop , whatever fish it saw, it went after.

No coral is hardy enough for a puffers beak! You will want to look into "reef-safe" fish.

Not entirely true. The puffer could "mow" green star polyps :P

Puffers can basically eat what they wanted. Especially inverts.
