My first saltwater tank had a Valentini, a Lunar Wrasse and a peppermint shrimp. I woke up one morning to find the first two playing tug of war with the shrimp. I've heard they don't go well together but a few forums report people keeping them successfully.
I like the puffers and non-reef fish and am also having a hard time deciding. One thing to consider is that not only will shrimp be risky but any cleaning invertibrates could become food. I kind of like the idea of crabs and snails doing my work.

Hi! I'm a newbie to this hobby also but I am totally addicted already!. I asked my husband for an aquarium for Christmas (I was thinking 20g) and he bought me a complete 150g setup with an oak stand and canopy! We've also been undecided what to put in it because all the stuff we really want is not compatible with each other! This is what I want:
1-Black Volitan Lionfish
1-Porcupine Puffer
1-Snowflake Eel
This is what I have right now:
4-Green Chromis
3-Emerald Crabs
2-Horseshoe Crabs
2-Peppermint Shrimp
1-Red Serpent Star
Has anybody out there had any luck at all keeping any of the first 3 with any of the others successfully? Could it make a difference if I kept the predators very well fed?

your peppermint shrimp and chromis will be food, and it's very likely that your porcupine puffer would also make a meal of the serpent star, the emeralds and horseshoe's typically stay out of reach and would have a chance for survival, but nothing is guarunteed :)

It occurs to me that this is the very reason so many aquarium hobbyists have more than one tank. They can't fit everything they want into one tank!
