Whats shakin aquarium advice!

Heyya,
I am a first timer here to the forums, and fairly new to the hobby. I am starting my first brackish tank. My Boyfriend and I have other tanks at this time but I want to have a species tank for a figure eight puffer. I was looking to do just a 10 gallon to fit on top of my desk for the time being and then upgrading to a larger one after we move. I have heard that puffers typically do better in 20 gallon tanks but this is due to the high ammonia waste that they produce. I was thinking I could make it work with the proper amount of plants and filtration. Any input or advice?

Hey welcome to the forum.

Get the youngest figure 8 you can find. Water quality will be bad for an adult. Updraft ASAP.

Here is my profoling of figure 8 puffers: Figure 8 Puffer Profile
Please add more to it if you have advice or suggestions after doing research or personal experience.
