To start with, Im not a puffer fan. So, why you must be asking am I asking questions? My wife was browsing with me at my local PetCo and fell in love with a porcupine puffer. Personally, I think they are ugly, but hey, its AquariumAdvice.com not AquariumOpinions.com right?..Anyway she wanted me to immediatly take one home and dump it in my 29G reef tank. Having some general knowledge of puffers, I know them to be a risk at best in reef tanks. While the ones at PetCo are not very big, I also know they can get to be 20" or so.
FINALLY...The question(s): I have no idea what kind of tank or tankmates best suite puffers. Keep them in pairs? 1 per tank? What kind of substrate? LR
? Sand? CC
? Tank size..29G with a single puffer seems like it would last quite a while, though in the end its either upgrade or send the puffer elsewhere. I've never had a FO
tank. All mine are reef and community at that. So, please, fill me in..
