Based on what I read on liveaquaria, I would say no. Puffers are not reef safe and eat inverts. I wouldn't try it.

It will probably pick at it but probably won't kill it if it's that nice not worth it.

I think with puffers it's down to the individual. Both me and my brother keep puffers with leather corals without a problem. If you really need to put it in just keep an eye on it, you could be lucky.

I've never had any luck mixing puffers, I know lots of people have done it but for me it's too much of a risk. Also for me a puffer is almost a 'centrepiece' of any tank so it'd be a shame to take the attention away from it with another.

I currently have a Dogface, Blue Spotted Toby, and a Valentini Puffer in my 180g with no issues.
