They actually need to go to full saltwater when they reach 1.25 - 1.5 inches, for them to remain healthy and continue growing. But this must be done slowly. It should take at least 2 weeks. I think you will be surprised at how much more active they become. color will improve also.

I really want to do this as 1. They're super cheap and 2. They're my second favorite freshwater puffer. Problem is I don't have an extra tank to do it in so I can't get one unless I ask the store to do it for me and knowing the people there they'll probably try to jip my money

This can be done in a 10g tank. You should be able to get one cheaply, filter and all, as a kit which you then set up fresh and slowly, a little each day, watching ALL of your parameters until it matches your tank. Then again over the course of a day acclimate to the larger tank. This will leave you with a 10g sick tank, which is something you should have anyway.

But I forgot to add that they are real bullies. Read a lot before putting them in with anything else, and provide lots of hiding spots. They do get mean with other fish. Mated pair species tank is best.

Awesome thanks for the advice I thinking about it as I'll soon have an empty 10gallon but I'm not sure if I have the resources to do so it if I'll know how to anyways but I'll ask and research more as it will set my spotted hawk fish straight he's a big bully

The best part about a sick tank is that you dont want a bunch of stuff for it. I believe I saw a few posts on them. It's a necessity really.

It's more likely the anemone is dying or dead already and the worms are just doing there job.
