Good Advice Needed on Puffer Compatability

I have a 120G FOWLR tank and I have a baby porcupine puffer fish and want to know if I should introduce a Dog Face puffer fish of similar size (4 inches or so). I have heard that it is best to limit each tank to one puffer and I have also heard they would be fine together.. Need some advice. Good Advice Needed on Compatability

Keep one per tank. Generally they might get along for awhile, but will fight for dominance eventually, and you won't be able to stop it or save one before they shred each other apart.
Enjoy your porcupine, I loved mine, they are so quirky.
