I don't think the puffer would fit that set up. What kind of wrasse and angelfish?

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

With a 46g I would say that a dwarf angle (Coral Beauty, Flame ect...) The puffer will probably get too large for that tank. There are a lot of wrasses that would work fine in that size tank.

I was thinking a spotted boxfish which min tank size is 50. But I have found many different puffers that would work in a 30 gallon for instance the Saddle Valentini Puffer. And for the wrasse I want to get a mystery wrasse and a banana wrasse.

Pink spotted gobies are beautiful . Check out my gallery for a pic of mine. Very impressionable

the Saddle Valentini isnt really a puffer, its a toby. They are awesome fish for the fowlr aquarium. if you had them you couldnt have any inverts. here are some that are the first to come to mind that would be good for you.

saddled or valentini toby
papuan toby
dwarf angels (lemon peel, bicolor, flame, singapor, just a few)
hawkfish (longnose, flame, just to name a few)
bigger goby's (like diamond )
bigger blenny's
maybe some damsels

I would leave all butterly's, tangs/ surgons (tangs and surgons are same family but may be labeld differently) out as they need more room to swim

personally this is what I would do

papuan toby (personality and beutifull)
lemonpeel (dwarf) angel (beutifull yellow body)
flame hawkfish (beutifull red body) or m/f pair of clown
yellow tailed damsel (beutifull blue body)
diamond goby (sand sifter/ color/ personality)
six line wrasse (personality and color)

somthing along those lines....
