Golden Puffer, tankmates and flow

I have a large golden puffer and large zebra eel in a tank by themselves. They have been by themselves for a few years, but had tank mates for a couple years before that of another eel and puffer and were fine. Would a porcupine puffer work as a tank mate?

I also want to increase the flow rate in the tank but don't think I can put in a larger pump because the corner overflow may not handle it. I'm worried about a powerhead in the tank because the puffer is quite the chomper. Any ideas for higher flow that would be large puffer safe?

Do any of the puffers chew on the wires? I think I'll thread the wire through a 1 inch pvc pipe. My puffer chews on many things in the tank so I would not want him to be electrocuted.

For some reason they leave alone.. But great idea. I used to have the ice cap wifi camera in the tank and they destroyed that..
