Questions about fw puffers

Are there really any true freshwater puffers? Or do they all have to be atleast brackish water? I want a puffer, but of course with my setup that will not work if i need brackish water. Anyone have any info?

Is there anyway to slowly convert a Brackish water puffer to freshwater? I would be interested to know. Because i had a puffer once before, not sure what kind it was (FROM WALMART LOL) It lived for ever in regular freshwater. Is it possible to convert the fish?

South American Puffers are true freshwater. The species name is Colomesus asellus. Aka Amazon puffer, Brazil Puffer, Bee Puffer. Also it's one of the only puffers you can sometimes get to work in a community tank (they still nip, but they're not as aggressive as most of the others.)
