puffer fish compatibility
 
can i put a juvenile spotted or figure eight puffer fish with a red tailed shark and gourami?

The figure 8 puffer is a brackish water fish so no on that one. Also when you say spotted. I am assuming you mean green spotted puffer? Also a brackish water fish.

In addition to the brackish thing, they are pretty territorial. They have no problem tearing off other fishes' fins. A slow moving gourami wouldn't be a good idea. The red tail shark might be OK, but the puffer might bite him too.
