"We had been keeping a spotted green puffer in a brackish tank with two mollies for the last several months with no apparent problems. When I got up this morning it had crashed. I did the bi-weekly water change two days ago. It died on my lunch hour. I feel terrible. This was my six-year-old son's long-awaited pet after he saw one at Wal-Mart and wanted it last Christmas. Before he was allowed to have one I did a bunch of research, set up a brackish tank and cycled it with the mollies for a couple of months. We got the fish from a local fish store and it was doing great. Very personable. We started it on flake food with the mollies, per the fish store recommendation, but recently started giving it a bit of freeze-dried krill every couple of days as a treat. I can't figure out why it suddenly crashed. The mollies are fine -- but they are very hardy fish, so that doesn't mean much. The puffer was active and fine until this morning. The only recent change was adding krill to the diet. Did this cause the death of our fish?"
