New Puffer

Just introduced our newest family member to the tank. A porcupine puffer! I've been noticing it taking in a rock or shell then spitting it out. Is that normal...?

Great addition. He is probably just looking for food. Try your best to not overfeed your guy. Its very difficult to starve them to death.

Great! Thanks for the advice. Once I noticed him doing that I even threw some more food in there. I'll make sure to watch my feelings.
