Depends on the sex of the fish. Recommendations vary but usually it is 2-5 gallons per fish. Leaning towards 2 for females and leaning towards 5 for males.

*Edit* Almost forgot, Welcome back! :)

When they are very young, no. When they are a bit older the females will be rounder than males and males will have wrinkles aroung their eyes (sounds mad, but it's true, LOL). Males may also have a more prominent line down their bellies, but this is not always the case.

its 10g but im not sure what part of the tanks volume is actully taken up by the filter there tank size is depends purely on aggression and stopping them from attacking each other its a temporay aragement but they seem fine with it as theve grown up together when i move my shelldwellers up to a bigger tank the puffers will get there 18g i dont want to get stuck with to many large tanks at the moment as soon as uni finishes im moving
