The puffer should be fine with corals, why do you think otherwise?

The puffer will eat inverts and every once in a while if not fed enough he'll munch on some soft coral.

Also, the suncoral needs each of his heads spot fed. They don't use photosynthesis.

Each puffet is different. I know for a fact that puffers can eat any corals (i only follow puffer threads). They are just less likely to eat soft corals. I know some toby puffer eating all LPS and others who dont touch them. Please reframe from keeping your puffer "well fed" in attempt to decrease the chances of nibbling corals and other livestock. You end up overfeeding your puffer which lead to premature death. Feed once daily until tummy is slightly rounded. Its very difficult to starve a puffer.

A puffer may challange an invert with much greater size.

I ended up buying my live rock from a LFS over the weekend an got a mix of uncured and cured rock 20 kilos for $200. Bargain! There is a lot of life and stuff on them and a few pieces have these green bubbles which I think is a form of algae? Should I try and remove them or can I leave them? I've scaped them as best as I could for what I had, but think I may need another 10 or 20kgs to make it look complete and better. What do you think from these pics? I also will wait a couple if days before I test my ammonia. I added 20ml if bio culture today and will repeat dose every week.
