LOL! That's funny! I read on a different post that someone had put a little ball in that floated on top and their puffer would push it around and play with it!

Nice puffer. I used to have a Saddle Valentini and miss it. They have such personalities. Your comment he sees you and knows it means food reminded me that my fish sitter said when he came to feed last month when I was on vacation that my fish wouldn't come out and he said they missed me lol. Every time he saw them before they were always out and then when he came over without me they just hid :P

... Well... You've done it. You've convinced me to buy a puffer, they just seem like such personable little fellas. When I first got the idea of starting saltwater I really wanted a dogface, but they get too big for a 75. The saddle puffers are cool, but are there any puffers around the 8" mark that would do good in a 75?

These are the puffers that LA state as needing minimum 50g:
Papuan Toby puffer
Saddle puffer
Saddle Valentini puffer
Spotted puffer
Blue spotted puffer
Leopard puffer
Bennett's sharp nose puffer

Hope you find one you like! Puffers are so cute!

I really like the papuan toby puffer, I just hope it can hold it's own with a trigger. Because it only grows to 5" it's not the biggest fella in the tank, I'll tell ya that.

Anyway

The blue spotted would be the best for your tank... They get bigger than all the other Toby's I believe plus there are gorgeous
