Dragon gobies with Puffers

I've been trying recently to get an idea of what fish I could stock with a Dragon Goby. (Gobioides brousonnetti) I wasn't planning on getting one until one of my current brackish tanks get upgraded, but I've fallen in love with the one at my lfs.
I've seen that people have kept them with Figure 8 puffers, or have recommended them as possible tank mates. Has anyone successfully kept them together? I have a few Figure 8s and a Mono he could go in with, but don't want to risk losing anyone in the tank. Opinions?

I currently have monos, a dragon goby and an archer and they pretty much ignore each other. Due to what I've read I have not risked puffers in there. I have always been advised that they are spices only.

We are of a common mind. My tank is also built around the dragon goby

Any lfs should carry them. Walmart almost always carries them around here, and all the big chain pet stores. Our Pet Smart is having a sale on them right now and I might have to pick a few more up. They're going to be in freshwater at the stores though so you'll have you to slowly raise the salinity for them. Also, they're schooling and have the potential to get 15" I believe. So you need a large tank.

He's stunning. And your goby as well. Do you have any more pictures of him ? I've had such a hard time finding pictures of them grown. Probably because they normally die small in the freshwater tanks.
