Yes. They can get stuck, and die that way. Also it produces a toxin that in time it will kill them.

yes, bad to do. My puffer got sucked up by a PH a few mintues after interducing him into the tank and puffed up, cool to see.. but not good for him........he was ok, but i put guards on the ph so it wouldn't happen again.
