Hello everyone!
I was at petco the other day (I know dont buy fish there...) they had a leopard puffer for sale for $5 and was in freshwater tank. ( i did buy him) These fish can live in fresh or brackish when young (he is 1 1/2 inch) but as they get older they need full marine. I have a 20 gallon reef tank and another 20 gallon saltwater breeding tank for saltwater mollies ( I sell to LFS) so I am experienced with this kinda stuff. I just have a few question so if you could answer that would be great!
#1 - What size tank do they need?
#2 - What fish can they live with?
#3 - at what age do they need full marine?
#4 - What do they eat? (I am feeding snails right now but is there anything else?)
#5 - Will they eat plants or corals?
(if there is anything else you think i should know plz feel free to do so!)

~Thanks in advance!
