Green Spotted Puffer and Fish Mates

Is there any other Fish That can Live with a green spotted Puffer?

I had 2 Butteryfly Gobys for over 6 months living with my puffer and now i dont see the gobys

Could a GSP eat the Whole goby leaving no remains?

Jeff

I know of no other fish that can live with a GSP except another one and you need a very large tank for that.

GSPs are VERY aggressive and get even moreso with age, they turn into 6" balls of terror. They also need full SW after about 2 years, they can't stay in FW and need BW.


read this article carefully.

I just got rid of a GSP by giving him to a friend. He dispatched a 6 inch columbian shark in one night with no remains, and I had never seen him exhibit any aggression before that towards the shark, which was his buddy. I had him for about 12 months with no problems toward any fish, even small tiger barbs. Then he picked a couple off and I left only him and the shark which was much bigger. Well, about 3 months later the shark just dissapeared. GSP's are single species fish, they just don't do well with anything else.
