Settle this once and all... GSP.. Is he reef safe, or not?

Ok. We have a Green Spotted Puffer, who's been SW since we got him, about 9 months ago.

Simple question. We are going full on Reef..
IS he reef safe, or not? I have heard not. But then again, I have also heard that my Snowflake was not reef safe either (But have read that they are), so who knows.. ;-/


Can someone fill me in?

I DO know for a fact that he would eat some of the more ornamental clean up crew critters I'd like to have in the future...

That'd be a no, then.. I take it?

The LFS is willing to take him, but it'd be a freebie. No exchange value, according to them.

I would say no as well. Chances are he would eat your ornamental mobile inverts.

It wouldn't be worth it to me to risk (or do without) my ornamental inverts. I enjoy my shrimp way too much!
