Welcome to AA! I'd suggest maybe sending Mr. Limpet a private message on this site. He's had experience with freshwater and brackish puffers.

Welcome Aboard!

It really depends on which puffer you're talking about. I have GSP (green spotted puffers) and they're the most aggresive of all IMO. I have a young pair of GSP with bumblebee gobies and shrimp. The puffers will make motions towards tank mates, but so far no losses (1 month in tank), although I can't always see the shrimp .

Here's a link to my GSP tank/build: New Tank Build: 29 Gallon GSP Adventure

Mr. Limpet...I have platys so far - plan to get cherry barbs, rainbow fish and maybe a few glo fish...are the puffers too aggressive for this crew?
