You knw what I haven't used the test kit at all because of what I have been reading online when using copper but I guess it doesn't hurt to try myself right lol so I'll be testing it today to see what happens!

Try ghost shrimp. A few snails might be a good idea as well.

Why do you keep mentioning copper? A puffer should never be exposed to copper. A puffer should never be kept in any tank that has ever had copper in it or any rocks, sand, etc that has ever been exposed to copper.

Yes I did read that for puffers but that is what I use in my qt, I'm always very careful increasing the dosage and he is fine, just couldn't get him to eat but I think it's because he was new but now he is fine eating n all over the place
