I hear ya, I change my tank around a lot too but the more corals I get the harder it is for me to move things around. It stresses out my corals which stresses me out to see them mad at me lol.

Also I found out the type of puffer I am talking about that is survived in saltwater and it is supposed to be freshwater, it is called a green spotted puffer. The manager at the LFS, who is extremely knowledgable and has been helping me since I started, was helping me one day and I pointed to the little green spotted puffer and said I want that! He started laughing because he started to tell me the story about how it was a trade in from a customer that kept it in a saltwater system so they kept it in saltwater as well. I go there twice a week to get my RO/DI water and would always check up on him to see if it was still doing ok and one day he was gone because someone else bought him. Here is a pic also they are so cute...

Yeah I don't like moving to much stuff to often cause of stressing the fish. So I just do a little bit once a week during water changes. Have always been told that GSPs are brackish water fish and some say they need saltwater setups when they are fully matured. The ones I got are about half the size of those lol they have a profile of them on here Dwarf puffer ( can click on the name that is shaded) Its under tropical fish profiles second tab from the left on the blue bar on the top of the page.

Aww those are so cute. Puffers in general are probably one of my favorite fish. How many do you have in one tank and are fresh water puffers aggressive? Saltwater puffers can be aggressive except porcupine puffers, which is what I have, although sometimes they can be bullies too when they are adults.

I have 4 in my tank. I didn't like them at first. I got them because of my wife who loves them to death but they have very much grown on me now! She reslly wants a dogface puffer. They are very aggressive! I had two males and 3 female to start with and the 2 males got into it and only one survived. I have been told that the only other fish you can put in a tank with them is Oto catfish. So I tryed that once and it turned out to be a bad thing. Neither one made it. Ooops The only thing that has survive with them is a ghost shrimp but just one LoL
