I've used esha2000 and gdex on pea puffers with no issue with recommended dosage, in hospital tank or main tank.
I've noticed that pea puffers do not enjoy full dosage of esha eXit. If ich I would not use recommended dosage.

Also beware that in some cases, even though these medicines are labeled shrimp safe, I've had a few neocardinas casualties with multiple treatments combination.
