You have 2 big fish in a nano tank. Rethink your stock list before you add anything.

Okay then, what are you going to do when they get bigger? Dont buy a bunch of small fish that will get huge. Its a bad idea and you will need to have a huge upgrade

Check out liveaquaria's "nano fish" section. It'll point you in the right direction.

Buy fish considering their full grown size not what size they are when you buy them.

The cowfish reaches a full grown size of 1'8" according to liveaquaria. Also it is difficult to care for and can poison your tank if it gets stressed. Cool fish, wouldn't want him to suffer in that small tank. The valentini suffer should be ok. General rule of thumb to follow, one inch of fish for every five gallons. That puffer full grown will be 4 inches, so becareful not to overstock that small tank.

Now to be helpful, if you get rid of the cowfish, I think you could put a long nose hawkfish with that small puffer.
