School of pea puffers?

I think that I've decided to stock my 125 with a decent sized school of pea puffers. Anyone else have a large number of them?

How many do you think I could get in there? I was thinking 40 or 50 would be pretty cool.

Just no! These little guys are territorial. In nature, food is not guaranteed like in a tank. The result is that they guard their area so they don't have to share.
If you insist, keep at least 5 gal / puffer, so 25, or 20 to be conservative.
