Does anyone have a puffer fish? What type? How old is yours? Size? My bf had one for quite some time. Poor thing has passed away though. I wouldn't mind getting another. Have you seen the freshwater ones? Sooo cute!

I presently have a freshwater puffer. He/she is a spotted puffer. I had 2 others a few months ago, they were the figure 8 puffers. For some reason or other.. they only lived about 2 months in my tank. But this spotted puffer seems to be doing just fine. He just LOVES to eat the tiny snails that are all over my tank. He/she/it I have had now for about 8 months. It is great to watch my 4 year old feed it by hand, the little blood worms. Takes them things right out of her little fingers.

I had a Porcupine Puffer, those are salt water fish. He was huge, when he puffed up he was about the size of a small pizza

I love puffer fishes. I have never owned one though, may in the future. I think they are super cute.

i have a friend who has one, a freshwater puffer. Very aggressive and they say that it's skin is poisonous, i think it's a certain delicacy in some countries. Don't know the common name but its scientific name is tetraodon fangi.
