Pea puffer with other fish??

Selenasue

I know pea puffers are quite territorial but has anyone had or have a pea puffer with other fish successfully?
 

Chomskypom

My housemate has 3 pea puffers with small schools of 5 each serpae tetra and neon rainbowfish in a 55gal. It’s heavily planted and, I think, pretty understocked- those 13 are the only things in that huge tank and it looks like a forest with tons of amazon swords and driftwood, so it’s easy for them to avoid each other. They all do fine together despite being kind of impulse buys and not especially compatible.

I’ve never kept them with other fish and wouldn’t suggest the risk when you can easily avoid it! I have seen it done though just unsure of the long term

Every situation/fish is different. I have 6 of them with red cherry shrimp, my son has a few of them in another tank and they will shred a cherry shrimp in an instant.
