Would this work?

Someone just gave me a 20 gallon long that's been cycling for 25 years. I currently have a percula and a three stripe damsel I want to get a coral beauty a Javanese damsel and a stars and stripes puffer. Do any of you think there'd be an issue there?

Hello, welcome the the forum! You may be able to add the Damsel and the angel, I have never heard of that puffer before, but I thought puffers needed more than 20 gallons of swimming room (unless it is a super small puffer or something lol). Just be careful if you add the damsel because your current damsel may be aggressive towards it. Good luck!

I would not put a puffer in a 20 ... ..The tank is just big enough for the dwarf angel,,but just barely ..They get 5+ inches and may not be able to stay in there for life..

Your tank is way too small for a stars & stripped puffer and a porcupine puffer. Both will around 2-3 foot long. Tank size should be in the 100s or 200s gallon. Here is a pic of a massive stars & stripped puffer taken last week during my road trip:

They dont get 2-3 feet. The porcs will get 1' and stars and stripes a little bigger. Still 100+ gals tho. I personally dont think thatl work for a dwarf angel. MAYBE only and african dwarf flameback.

it's not a good tank for even a pigmy angel IMO. what happened to the coral beauty that was in the aquarium before? generally, fish live 10-15 years.
