Puffer

Hey does anybody have any experience with a honeycomb puffer and do you think that would work good in a 46 gallon tank?

They are best housed in at least a 50G tank, and can be semi-aggressive. I think their skin is also somewhat poisonous.

Right if their skin is somewhat poisonous does that mean it can harm the other fish?

Possibly, I can't recall what parts, but I am pretty sure it is a defense mechanism. They may foul your tank if they die. I would wait on other responses.

I don't know anything about this fish, but my trusted source tells me that it's semi-aggressive and requires a 50 gal tank minimum but says nothing about it being poisonous:
