Would i have any issues with this fish?

I have a biocube29. 2 clowns. Yellow tail damsel and purple dottyback. Could there be any issue adding a Orange Tail Fiji puffer?

What kind of set up is it? The only reason I ask is because these fish are super messy! I have a similar and you should see the amount of poo that comes out! I know they say min 30g but my guy likes to swim long distances too. I wouldn't recommend it as you seem quite stocked already. I would go for a smaller fish with less bio load. And yes, they will eat snails, shrimp and crabs...

Yes and just a couple corals. Levels have always been 0. But i was worried he would eat them so prob not the best fish. Are all puffers like that?

No, he is a rainsfords goby. You ever thought of getting rid of the damsel? I also have a purple fire fish which is a great addition too but they are pretty shy and I fear would get bossed about by a damsel.

Gonna have to check that out. He is cool. Really i hear all the horror stories. Has never picked at any of the fish once. Actually none of my fish have. Chance he might have to go but he has never caused any issue. My understanding is the yellow tail is less aggressive. I had seen a couple firefish. But with all the fish i have he could get bossed around.
