Does anyone know about the Valentini puffer suitabilty to reef tank? I have heard mix results about this fish in reef tank. I'm thinking about purchasing a small one for my tank.

I just read a artical on this in 2006 reef keeping mag I believe. misunderstood reef fish they had mentioned a blue spot puffer you might want to try one of these. just keep them feed and beware they may eat your shrimp and snails.

Took down every hermit crab I had and shrimp. Loved that little guy, pooped like a tang, would always come to front of glass begging for food.

Lost him to a power outage.

There are also Mimic Files, that mimic this puffer. Stay small, do ok in the reef. Don't seem to bother anything.
