    Well I'm gonna try my first freshwater tank. I know ill have to upgrade here pretty soon, but while it grows in the 29g it'll give me time to plan the upgrade. My old 29g reef tank is serving as the puffers home now. I know its a little bare but soon ill add more rock and fake plants. Here are some pictures of the little guy/gal.

    just looked up those on youtube and man do those things get big!!!!:eek:

    good luck! I had two green spotted puffers before that I acclimated to full marine over the course of a month or two. Ended up having them for two years before moving on. They never got that big, but puffers are still awesome.
