i want a puffer.. but
my local fs has some green spotted juvi puffers.i want one but,they have to be aclimated to salt which is easy but time consuming.the guy also says that they are mean and will probably pick my fish to death.my current stock is 2 nemo clown fish,2 3 stripped damsels a yellow damsel and a diamond goby.is there any thing i can do to be able to have him?
Puffers in general are very aggressive and nippy. What are the sizes of your current fish and the puffer you want? And do you have a lid on your tank? I ask the last one because diamond gobies are very jumpy and if a puffer were to pick on him he will most likely end up on your floor. Your other fish need to be aggressive enough to stand up to a puffer. Damsels are aggressive, I have seen a four inch neon damsel beat up and harass an eel that was a couple feet long. Do you have any corals at all? Puffers are NOT reef safe.
Not reef safe. They will chew everything up. Especially any crustacean or invert, which are required to keep reefs up and going. How big is your tank anyway? I wouldn't put any aggressive fish in a small tank unless it was a species specific tank.
Puffer = No Corals and no small fish. They will munch on them and as stated above, they will eat your CUC.
