The green spotted puffer is brackish, as well as the figure eight. Spotted puffers should halve almost (if not full) marine as an adult. There are a few species of puffers that are full fresh the dwarf puffers, South American puffers (very hard to find) and a couple other species, that get bigger. Hope this helpes

Looks like your questions have been answered. The GSP and Fig 8 will do fine in fresh water for about year (they are collected in fresh water). Then they need to move to brackish. Full marine isn't necessary people do it to save money they can use live rock instead of doing weekly water changes. a good way to think of it is GSP's move down stream to estuaries sort of like salmon. They don't really venture out into open ocean but hang in mangrove type areas.

That's what I figured, I've learnt the hard way ask people here who are doing it now. I've had some issues with the google search and the lfs that I really trusted just closed. They were great honest, their tanks were immaculate and they actually would not sell you stuff You didn't need. I guess being honest wasn't profitable

Now the hard part convince the wife we need another tank. I can't even use the kids want it excuse anymore
