Biggest puffer I have seen

So on may ninth I went to Dayton, Ohio to a place called Gerbers Gazette. I should of taken a picture and I didn't. It's quite amazing.

I asked the guy about this fish and he gave me an interesting story behind it. He was telling me how they will take trade in's for fish which would outgrow their tanks and so forth and how one of is usual customers called him and saying his puffer had outgrown his tank. The customer only had a 60-65 gallon tank. Gerber told him to bring him in and they will work something out. Low and behold when Gerber had seen this fish he was amazed by the size which he was and only in a 65 gallon tank.

This fish was atleast a foot long, and as big as ever could be imagined. Gerber had told me the fish would actually let you pet him, and he showed me himself. quite amazing.
