ok well since you guys arent answering i went ahead and did it. they are both in the tank swimming next to eahother with no signs or threat. does this mean this could change later on? or will they always be fine?

Of the puffers I would have suggested not to try this with (besides a Mappa/Stellatus), were the Porcupine and the S&S. However those previous stories of failure were either of them were mixed with less aggressive ones, dogface, burrfish, etc. For the time being, I believe they will be fine. However the Porcupine will eventually reach maturity and then I believe problems will arise, as they develop such a jekyll/hyde personality. I have seen Porcupine's bite yellow tangs, taking out most of their back, completely out of the blue.
