She's not squishy, here is another shot. She is only about 2 " and has not grown at all. Here skin(?) is a different texture, rougher I guess.
Hard to tell from the pick. Here is another.
here she is on liveaquqria.

Ive had a General star with the puffer for several weeks now and he never pays any attention to it.

From what Ive read and the posts here, I think I'll pass on the blue for now, but would like opinions of another interesting invert I could add.

I would look at a red sea star. They are not as delicate and will scavenge for micro fauna and film algae.

Red Serpent star would be another good choice. Its in the brittle star family, but not nearly as aggressive as the green brittle.

Conchs are always interesting...I love the one little eye that sticks up like a periscope when they are burried in the sand.

Skunk Cleaner shrimp are my favorite shrimp of all time. They are always out and beautiful.

Cowerie can be great if you dont have any polpys in the tank. They tend to munch on them.

Hmm. Maybe I will try some stuff with my porc. I have about 5 hithiker crabs in the tank with him now and he fights with them. He has not killed any though.

I don't really trust him to put my hand in the tank. He is always at the top and seems to nip anything that enters. He is always hungry Most puffers I have had in the past seem to shy away once you put your hand in the water...

I pet mine!!! Hes gentle and will let me tickle his belly. He only acts agreesive if he thinks its feeding time.

Im sure he has munched on hitchiker crabs, I doubt there is anything big enough in my LR to give him any trouble at all. He does terrorize my hermit and snails, but hasnt figured out how to get the out of the shell yet.

Thanks for the input squishy, I'll do some research on those now
