There are tons of threads about how to start a saltwater tank, so ill leave it up to you to research the site and come back with any specific questions. But salwater tanks are just that, only saltwater, rocks, and fish/inverts. Reef tanks have corals in them.

What do you want to know? Puffers eat shrimp so thats a bad combo. Most puffers get very big so you better have a large tank (180 or so) if you want dogface or spiny puffers. Harlequin shrimp eat star fish and it gets to be an expensive diet
