Aw, be nice to the puffer! They are born hunters-- they will pretty much tear apart any kind of crustacean, but thats just what they naturally do.

I keep mine in a brackish tank, with low salinity and no live rock. They enjoy things to hide in, I recommend lava rock and sand/gravel on the bottom- once my brackish tank is re-cycled I will post pics. I'm sure you could always throw some base rock in there too.

Check out my fishkeeping blog!

OMG those rocks are HUGE! i would smash em with a mallet and chissel and youll get smaller rocks. then it would look a little more natural.

Subject: Larry LaPrise dead at 93

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.
