NO!, puffers are not reef safe, they will eat all of your plants, my buddy put a pocupine puffer in his 55 gallon and it ate everything in his tank (except fish)withing 48 hours

I just talked with a guy at my LFS the other day that put a Porc Puffer in his 90 and the Puffer ate his Ocellaris Clowns. lol Then he bought 2 more pairs of clowns which were all eaten as well until he realized had had to get rid of the Puffer.
