FYI, the cowfish should outgrow the tank in under 1 yr. I have one in QT in a 20 for about 2mos. and it's heading for relocation soon. A pair of longnose hawkfish was a good suggestion or anthias, possum wrasses, fairy wrasses,...himalayan beaver :p It's more helpful to state what kind of fish interest you: fluttery, semi to aggressive, burrowers, etc

those 2 fish in that tank will be like a sardine can in no time
puffer can grow well over a foot and cow not far behind
you say sell them when they get big , know what good luck
not even a pet store would take them back that big
if your not going to keep them the duration of there life span don't buy them in the first place
and please don't say I'll release them in ocean
because they wont last a week
not trying to sound harsh but that's just how it has to be said

The valentini puffer I looked at should only get 4 inches, he should be fine with that, but the foot and half cowfish is too much. Overstocked will cause stress, like I said the cowfish poisons the tank when stressed. They're super cool looking but I wouldn't think of putting one in my 50 gallon.
