I had them for about 2 yrs. they grew to be about 3"-4" in the time I had them. I kept some other fish In there. A tank of odd ball fish. An irridescent shark. A couple red tail sharks. 2 parrot fish. Some others. I eventually traded them all in.

He's adorable!

I hope to have my toby puffer within the next month. I'm leaning towards a papua.

Is yours a solandri maybe? I can't tell very well from the picture.

If you don't mine me asking, what size tank and tankmates? And if he has tankmates, any issues so far?

At the LFS they said its a blue spotted puffer. He is in a 90g tank with a 3 inch Foxface lo and a 2 1/2 Ing kole tang so far. More to come after I add another power head and some more spare $$$. I know I want a flame angel but I'm not sure what else I will add.

Forgot to add, no trouble at all so far. Just a really awesome fish to watch. I did only add him Friday but I don't for see any issues in the future.
