Also bad idea to keep FBT in there.. They are very toxic. I have one in a species only tank they are great don't need much space. Are the pea puffers trying to attack the other fish? I'm surprised you can house that type of variety..

I think there's a few but I go to the one in glen burnie. It's actually really nice if you ever are near check it out. They have a true giant gourami in the front (crazy!) and a huge selection of corals. Kind of cramped but there's so much there just need to go aisle by aisle lol.

Theres a place on Bel Air rd also called Tom's Tropicals. I believe they have puffers also, last time I was there they did. Its a tiny place but we go there for most of our fish. We go to Exotic Aquatics for other things too

Well, they are small but I have had them for about 6 months and they have shown no aggression at all toward the other tank mates. As for the FBTs I an moving them to their own 10 gallon

House of tropical is awesome, tom's is good too, but their staff are mostly kids that don't know or care about the fish/reptiles they sell. There is an older black guy with fuzzy grey hair at house of tropicals I think his name is Greg, he is the best. He used to have a FS in Baltimore city that I went to as a kid, really knowledgeable.
