They do have a toxin, but not sure how bad it is. Do you have a net? I'd use a net.

You could use a tank vacuum to get the smaller pieces. You should probably do a large water change after that anyways. Then you could suck up the bits off the sand and rock. If you don't have a vacuum, u wouldn't need a big one, they're usually under $10 at lfs for size you'll need.

The toxin is only is you EAT a specific part of the puffer, not if he got chopped up in your tank. Sorry about your fish, you might need to take a step back and get your tank in order before getting some more livestock. What are your water parameters?

No, it shouldn't affect your cycle, the BB is on rock, sand and surfaces. It's not in the water itself.

Chopped up fish bits will create ammonia and depending on the amount of BB, I would test for a few days to make sure you have neutralized it. Take it slow, the only think that happens fast in saltwater are problems.

I would test to water to make sure you have your levels in check. Your tank is fallow now, yes? Do you have any crabs or snails? Coral? Have you solved the problem on how the fish got stuck? If you go slow, I promise you will be better off.
