Green Spotted Puffer Fish can be a great aquarium fish to own. They often display magnificent color when they have proper diet and space. An aquarium for this fish would have to be at least 15 gallons. You want to be gentle when transferring to the tank, as not to agitate the fish. It is actually harmful to their bodies any time that they "puff" up. Puffers enjoy eating blood worms, snails, brine shrimp, and some vegetation. It is essential to give puffers something crunchy occasionally to help grind down their teeth which are also known as beaks. The beak of a puffer fish grows quickly and can block them from being able to eat.

In the video below, you can see how excited and animated the healthy puffer fish is when he gobbles up the snails with his beak.

Title: Brutus the puffer
by: pufferpunk 2011-12-06

We have a puffer fish named Brutus. He does like to eat shrimp sometimes but his favorites are snails. We used some regular snails out of the pond and let them multiply before putting them in the tank. It was like watching a game of hide and seek. He even swims over to get our attention when it is his dinner time. He is definitely a very smart fish. He lives in a tank with a few other types of fish and we haven't had any problems with him trying to attack them. The only thing that he has really gone after were the snails and who can blame him.
This looks like a promising new site and I'm glad I found it.
