Interesting... they say to use hyposalinity! Go figure!

Well..... I set up the QT tank and put the puffer in there with regular saltwater for a few days, and he got his appetite back. RELIEF! Now, every 2 days I'm dropping the salinity a little bit, as to not shock him more than already has been done. There are a couple spots on one fin, but that is about it.
