Yeah I have looked at them online. You 3 or 4 times what you pay for the fish for shipping. I am gonna go to a town about 45 min away next weekend to go fish shopping so hopefully I will find one then.

You should probably do a good google search to find all the LFS around your area and call them. I use to travel from town to town looking for fish, but would never find what I'm looking for. Now I just call each place and ask.

We are going anyways. We are buying fish for my wife's 55 and the kids 55. The lfs closest to us doesn't have a very good selection. It's funny the wife and kids get a 55 and I get a 10.

Dp are fw. Other puffs (that I know of) are brackish-full marine, but dp are not. Somebody can correct me if I'm wrong on that, but thats what I have read over and over while researching dp's.

I think you are thinking of green spotted puffers. They can live in fw for awhile while young, but brackish is better. The need full marine eventually too IMO.
Yes, dp could be an option for a 10g. Research them a lot though, because they do need some very specific care.
