Question about Puffers

So I recently added a young Dogface Puffer. It's only about 3" in length right now. I know they are considered to be not reef safe. Im not worried about my snails or hermits but my concern is, I have a few random Zoa's that have made it into my tank from live rock. I'm not worried about losing the Zoa's, but I have heard about the poison the Zoa's contain and how they can make a human very sick if not kill them. Now, if/when my puffer starts to nip at the Zoa's, is it going to cause any harm to him? Or my other fish from anything the Zoa may release?

They are poisonous to be ingested for fish although I don't know if the puffer would eat them or if he would be put off by natural instinct
