Wink Green Spotted Puffer Questions!!

Hiya!
I was thinking about getting a Green Dpotted Puffer. (GSP). I'm not postive about this.. I wanted to know if they could live in a 15 gallon, or maybe even in a 10 gallon.. I know they are brackish fish, and will delvelop into full saltwater..
Thanks!

Yes they can live In a ten gal but it is recommended 30gal minimum due to they grow quite large. If you get one you will soon find that they have quite a personality

So i've read!! I have wanted one for almost 3 months. I was about to get dwarf puffers. Like getting ready to go in the car.. But the only store that sold them was like across town.. So i called to make sure they had them in stock.. But they didn't.. The man said "We only get them like twice a year." So i just got other fish.. Glad i did, i love them dearly.. But still wish i got a dwarf puffer :]

Yeah gsp are amazing fish. My gf has one. Her tank was a fw/ brackish water for about 3 months then she wanted to change it over to full saltwater. So we acclimated the gsp for about 3 to 4 days and now he has been full saltwater for about 2-3 months now and from my experience he likes the full saltwater better. He is a cute little guy . Every morning he will come up to the glass and say hi then swim all around the tank to show off his green spot.

They are a little aggressive if you keep 2 of them I'n the same tank. Other then that any fish that is about the same size he will leave then alone.

I have had 7 of them in a 30 gallon tank,I was just starting the fish hobby then,they r great fish,but then,I've changed now,treated them like piranhas and threw smaller fish in to be killed and ate,I was an horrible fishkeeper then.but long as u have fish bigger then them u shouldn't have any problems.p.s. U will have to feed them snails/shrimp/crustoceans to avoid their teeth from over growing eventually.

Well we all make mistakes!
Yes, yes. The teeth!
My question: What kind of snails?
I gotta run this whole idea by my mother.
She hates it when i want more fish
