Talking I got my dream fish, a green spotted puffer!!!!

Well it's one of my two dream fish zebra plecos are the other..I WILL get one one day I got her as an exam treat since my results were good She's so adorable, she had been in the shop for a few months but they weren't for sale.. So I went to get a pygmy puffer.. They had none, plus the green spotted puffer would have totally ruled that out!! She has her own brackish tank.. I have only had her a few hours but why didn't I get one sooner they are so much fun compared to your average fish. Her name is Buttercup, named after the green powerpuff girl.. Also does anyone know which type of green spotted puffer she is they didn't have her scientific name? Here's some pictures, I hope you love her as much as I do!

Very cute!! I have one as well and he is definitely my favorite fish iv ever had!! I could be wrong but as far as I know there is only one type of GSP, and the scientific name is Tetraodon nigroviridis.

Hey you got a really good looking Tetraodon Nigroviridis! Congrats

Those are some beautiful pictures you got there.

If you fell in love this little gal, then I hope you really do your research to take proper care of her. Most GSP never reach max 6" due to improper care.

She is one of the cutest fish I've ever seen. I know nothing about Puffer fish, but I'd love to some day. Great photos of her too.
