I have a Spotted Green Puffer, and I think he is pregnant. But all I know is that he is an egg layer but I have no clue what the eggs look like nor do I know how long it takes them to hatch or know how to tell if they are pregnant. Sorry if I seem mean its just that well, I just got them and they are so cute, so I don't want to loose him yet. Another thing is what does ick look like and can it spread!?

Green spoted puffers will need full marine water when they get older.

I have done reasherch on green spotted puffers (gsp). The gsp's will need full marine when they get older they start out in fresh yes. If u have gsp then you want them to be in the best shape they can be. You will need to match the store water conditions then slowly transfer them to full marine. email me at n i will give u a good site or got to my user name there is greensp i am in the chat room alot. sine up there it is completly free.

My puffer died today. I was only feeding him flakes so I think his teeth over grew. Either that or it could be that he was traumatized when I cleaned his tank for the 1st time. Either timing would make sense. Poor puff.=( I'm getting another, any tips on what to feed him to keep his teeth down?

I have two gsp. I first put them in a tank with mollies and dwarf gouramis, they killed a gourami and nipped the fins of a mollie. Well I put them in a tank with a red devil, 4 oscars, pacu, red tailed cat, pleco, and jacks. An oscar tried to eat one puffer and quickly spit him back out. Well they proceeded to terrorize my cat, then ended up killing a 5 inch oscar, and nipped everybodies fins except the pleco, so I put them in their own tank with 2 figure 8 puffers and they are happy. I feed snails, clams, and krill and just so they have something to do I give them 30 guppies at a time. Inch for inch. gsp are some bad a?? fish.

I bought a puffer 3 weeks ago and it wasn't eating anything, so I bought another one and it started eating. Now they're both eating and I would like to breed them. So if you have bred them please email me at

I just purchased my puffer yesterday. Awesome fish and he seens to be doing really well. He is just a baby right now and I have a lot of other semi aggressive fish with a lot of hiding places in my 55 gal tank. So far so good. He instantly started playing in the bubbles, very fun to watch. He hasn't shown much aggression to any of my other fish yet, maybe because he is so small. I hope it will stay that way. I just love him. after reading the story about the guy who had to trim his puffers teeth with a cutical cutter (that would be hard to do!), I will be feeding mine snails real soon! He is just the cutest little thing.
