Figure eight puffer

Could I drip acclimate a figure 8 puffer to my tank? It will be a 30 gal long and have mushrooms xenias and other basic corals. Also a goby cardinalfish and clowns.

Doubt it will work long term. People have done it before but they end up dying prematurely...or were those gsp...Anyways one of those species won't last, the other will get to a foot long in SW. I can't recall which.
