Toby Puffers: which one to chose?

I have a 55 gal breeder with 65lbs of LR that just completed a cycle. I plan on getting a toby and a snowflake.

Anyone have a preference on toby species?

I'd like to possibly keep some corals down the road but wouldn't mind the sacrifice.

Looking for hardiness as I'm a beginner.

Saddlebacks and blue-spotted puffers both fascinate me. Are toby species really that different from one another?

Any tips or ideas on which ones are better and their different pros and cons would be awesome!

I love my Bennett's! I believe they have the same personalities as a other Toby puffers. Awesome fish - is ok with some soft corals (zoos, hammer, torch) will eat anything hard Click image for larger version
