Large species of fish pair best with pufferfish pets. Tangs, eels, foxfish and squirrelfish can work well. Most saltwater pufferfish will get along with other members of the same genus or some bolder fish like triggers, groupers and wrasses.
However, slower-moving fish and community fish should not be tank mates as puffers will nip their fins or other body parts. They also do not work well with corals, clams, crabs, shrimp and snails—as these are part of their usual diet.
