Brackish puffers

So I have a 20 gallon brackish set up that's finally ready for some fish! I have my heart set on a figure 8 puffer and a leaped puffer for the tank. Any suggestion on how to keep the fish healthy and living?

It's a mix between salt and freshwater. Some cichlids like brackish as well as puffers and knight gobys. I'm not sure what else likes it brackish but I'm sure there's many others

some snails are probably a good idea. Maybe nerite, mts, probably not apple snails

Are you saying leopard puffer? Something that looks like this: green spotted puffer - Google Search

If yes, then read about Green Spotted Puffer Here.

Green spotted puffers and figure 8 puffers do not mix.
