    I'm not exactly sure where this would go.

    I'd like to find tank mates for my 2 puffer fish that live in their brackish 44 gallon tank. They seem lonely. Any ideas on what other fish I can mix with them? I have 2 black scats in the 210 tank that I'd like to move in with the puffers because they seem to be the outcasts in the big tank...
