No he did not puff up , he didn't last that long I found out yesterday he looked very bad he was swimming fine N eating fine in the morning. My wife called me at work around 10PM saying he was very weak. My power heads were taking control if him. I got home feed them added the meds I bought but he didn't pull through.

Dang it!!! Don't blame yourself the illness was imminent. What a wonderful wife you have true catch to buy you such a thoughtful gift.

Celebrate the positive, you have a lot of love for future fish yet!

What kind of meds did you use? Puffers are scaleless and very sensitive to meds. Never treat a puffer with a full dose of any meds,

Maybe you are going through another cycle? What are your parameters?
