Niger trigger/ puffer tank mates

So I have a FOWLR tank that has been up and running for about a month, All my parameters look good and I have a reef that I was able to swap some mature matrix from to help even further in the nitrite/nitrate cycle. I have always wanted a Niger trigger, I think they are beautiful, and my Wife wants a porcupine puffer. Are these guys compatable, also how many triggers can you put together in a tank. This is a 75 gallon with a 20 gallon sump. And yes, I know the puffer gets big and if we go that route I will end up with a 125 or larger a couple years down the road! Haha

Thanks for any input!

I have two blue throats in a 180. I got them a few months ago at 4 and 5 inches and they have already grown an inch. I'd wait on the trigger and puffer until you get a bigger tank- they will outgrow a 75 in very short course, even if you get both of them really small.

As for multiple triggers, it's hit or miss. Your best bet is to add all the triggers at the same time (mine were a bonded pair).
