Addition of fish type with Green Spotted Puffer
 
I know that some do suggest keeping a GSP by themselves, but I have one juvenile in a 68 gallon (marine) all by himself, and really want something else.

I'd like to try one Blue Damsel. Does anyone have suggestions? If I float the fish and the puffer doesn't seem interested, is that a good sign? I really don't want any fish to be killed.

Or, should I get another young GSP? I'm open to suggestions!

Get a fish big enough that does not fit in his mouth, nor will it fit as he gets older.
Auriga Butterflyfish
Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Pakistan Butterflyfish
Dwarf/Zebra Lionfish
Tropical Fish for Brackish Aquariums: Ruby Scat
Tropical Fish for Brackish Aquariums: Mono Sebae

Just to name a few that would work.

Porcs and Doggs do nip, not to sure that the GSP does.
