if you like puffers, than tell us what size you like and color, and im sure we will pull something out. There are so many fish and we dont even know what color you like, lets learn more about what you want, not what we want you to want
equipment you will need is salt-mix, hydrometer, filter, water, buffering substrate (aragonite is most reccomended) high quality flake or pellet food or freeze dried as well as high quality frozen or live food , high quality heater. If you want plants then you will need a stronger light but im pretty sure you wont want any since i think puffers rip them up.
Salt-mix: You should use marine salt-mixes
hydrometer: Instant ocean hydrometer is good
Filter: in order from worst filter to best filter
Internal filter with only one filter media that you change monthly
HOB filters with only one filter media that you change monthly
Normal flow undergravel filter
Internal filter with two or more filter medias where you leave one type of media in there and never change it
Reverse flow undergravel filter
HOB filter with 2 or more filter medias where you leave one type of media in there and never change it
Buffering substrate: Aragonite sand
Im not too sure of the dietary needs of GSP
Not sure what a high quality heater is.....
this equipment is very basic, there are many more things to look at and to learn about
