Well I talked to the store, they ordered the wrong fish. What I have is what they are calling leopard puffers, which translates to green spotted puffers. So now I will be looking for about a 60 to 75 gallon set up to move these little guys to and start acclimating them to brackish and eventually to marine.
Well I wanted a salt water tank but wanted to be able to save up and get all the goodies not just jump in, I don't want to return my little fish so I guess I will be slowly taking the salty plunge.lol

60-75g is not enough. Look for around 100g tank for once in a life time upgrade. Once the new tank is cycling, start acclimating those 3 GSP to marine water.

Watch your water parameters closely. Your current tank is pretty small for your stock.

I looking for a 60 -75 for now while they are small, They will get up graded to 100-150 as soon as I can. I just thought for now the 60-75 is allot better for them than the 20 long that they are in.
I test the water in all my tanks daily, most get water changes once a week some twice a week. If I end up doing daily changes for these little guys till I can up grade them I will.
I don't wanna take them back god knows what would happen to them as small as they are probly in a 5 gallon un cycled tank and the person would have no clue why they died. Yes I assume the worst because I have heard their advice on fish.
