I've been eyeing these guys for awhile, but have not seen any at my fish store. Anybody know where I could find one online?

They seem to be out of season but check Aquabid & WetPets.

Great news. After my LFS said they haven't seen them in stock for a long time they are getting some in later this week! Question I have a 30 long setup, cycled and ready to go. I'd like to get two, do you all think they would be ok together short term while I get a second tank setup and cycled? They are likely going to be small, 1 inch or so.

Absolutely not. You may end up with 2 dead puffers. You could split the tank with a divider.
