Puffers and other scaleless fish do not handle copper well. I’d get the copper out ASAP. Hyposalinity would be a safer option here.
So I should clear the copper out ?
man’s lower the salinity ? How low the salinity should be ?

Yes take the copper out.
Salinity should be slowly brought to about 1.009 and held there for 30 days.
