Depends on the breed of puffer.
From the picture it could be one of three T. schoutedeni, the spotted congo puffer, T. fluviatilis, the Green spotted Puffer, or t. nigroviridis, the Spotted Puffer. T. fluviatilis is a brackish water pufferfish. T. nigroviridis can handle small amounts of salt (they actually do better with some salt), but is considered a freshwater fish. T. schoutedeni is a purley freshwater and shouldnt have salt. I cant tell by the picture which one it is though and I was kinda thought the gobies were but if their breeding something is probably right :)

The puffer in the picture isnt my dwarf puffer, its the one in my 18gal which is commonly know as a figure 8 puffer. I dont really know the scientific name of it. Unfortunately my dwarf puffer which I put in the tank with my gobies didnt make it due to eating disorders. I now keep the a low salinity level in the figure 8's tank since the only thing in it is the puffer and some killifish which both live in brackish-freshwater conditions.
