I bought mine and dump it into the aquarium.
It appeared very stressed and kept swimming around nervously.
It fed on the live tiny catfish which i threw in.

Tank was clear when i went to bed.
When i woke up all marine lifeforms were dead and aquarium was filled with a whitish fluid. Only survivors were corals, anemone, anemone crab and moray eel.

The next day i bought one more. same thing happened. this will be my last porcupine. *sad*

I just bought a porcupine puffer at petco. he's about 4+1/2 - 5 inches long and for the first day he hid under a piece of coral but then he started swimming around. I am hoping he will be compatable with a green wolf eel and a spiney box puffer. I was looking at purchasing them soon!

A common misconception is that this fish is a slow swimmer but it can keep up with just about any fish, especially when an attempt is made to catch it. They can dart from one end of the tank to the other in a flash. I have had several and they do seem prone to ich. Freshwater dips and keeping the salinity low, around 1.020, seem to help a lot.

I have a long horned cow named pickle, but am worried because I have been told that if he dies my whole tank will die too as he is poisenous. But so far so good, and you guys say he is easy to keep. He is really friendly, and a very interesting fish.

We just bought one...great little fish. He swims to the top of the tank every time he sees me and takes the krill from my fingers! He does puff up occasionally, for no apparent reason. This seems to take a lot of his energy, and he usually rests motionless in this state.

My Panther puffer looks like a Twin of the one in the picture. However,it mostly hangs at the surface of the tank,when they are bottom dwellers.Is there something wrong with it? THANKS!
