You are not overstocked. Wrasses, fast moving tangs, rabbitfish, hawkfish, etc. Almost anything that can stay out of the puffers way

I dont think it is overstocked either. Maybe a yellow tang would be nice. A yellow eyed Kole tang instead if you dont like the yellow.

Welcome to AquariumAdvice.com!!!
I do not think you are "over-stocked" eaither, using the poorly designed ins/gal "rule". When thinking f adding additional livestock, it is important to consider the biological filtering capabilities of the tank. If your water parameters are well ithin noramal limits then I would say you certainly have room for another fish. I like Mike's suggestion of a yellow or kole tang.

Thanks for the welcome. Do you think a small pork puffer would be to much. I have one that is 5 " that i'm taking back to lfs friday. I would really like to keep him if it's possible.
