Hello, I currently have a 180 FOWLR...Stock list, A scribbled Angel, Queen angel Yellow tang, Male and Femail Bird Wrasse and a Chocolate Chip Starfish.

All the fish leave the starfish alone..... Can I add a Arothron White Spotted Puffer w/o the starfish being bothered?

I wouldn't trust it. Even if it leaves the starfish alone at first it will probably nip at it out of curiosity then finish the job once it figures out that the starfish is edible. I'm drawing from my experience with a green spotted puffer who lived with one peacefully for two years then she "sampled" one of the knobs on top, decided she liked the taste, then finished the job.

I doubt it. Even if it doesn't outright eat the sea star, it will sample it to death. That's a big puffer, one sample bite per day will end the choco star in no time.
