"I saw Green Spotted Puffers at a store a few weeks ago and I thought they were adorable! I finally bought two last night. I put them in my 55 gal. aquarium with a 14" Pleco, 2 large fantail goldfish, 2 large moors, 2 1" fantails, 2 Cory catfish, and 4 Gold Claw crabs. The (not-so) informative tag on the Puffers at the store said 'may nip fins.' I thought they would be fine, as they are only about 1" big themselves, and the goldfish are quite lively. Our tank is well planted, with several decorations that provide hiding. I woke up this morning and the 2 small fantails have hardly any fins at all! All 4 of the larger goldfish have been significantly chewed on, 2 of them have very little tail left. I netted the Puffers and they are sitting in a bucket. A local pet store said that they would take them off my hands, but without reimbursement. I really like the fish, but I did not realize that 'may nip fins' meant that they would viciously devour the other non-aggressive fish. Would they do okay in a bowl with an aerator? "
