"I think the best environment for green spotted puffers is saltwater not only because it seems better for their health, but the fact that they can and will tear your fish apart in a freshwater setup. I'll explain: Even though they can last for some time in freshwater, you'll soon notice that they become fish terrorists! All green spotted puffers are wild caught, where most fish have to fend for themselves. In your typical pet store, most freshwater fish are tank bred and have no idea what a predator is, so when the puffer with his/her extremely sharp beak shows up, they don't have a chance! I've seen many so-called "aggressive" freshwater fish have their pretty fins torn to pieces from a puffers sharp nip. Saltwater fish however, know how to defend themselves against predators and most don't put up with bad behavior. When I had my green spotted puffer (named Sushi), she tried to grab my coral beauty angelfish's fins, but the angelfish nipped back and chased her away. When she tried the same thing with my maroon clown, blue damsel, and royal gramma, they did the same thing and she knew not to even bother trying to nip them. I kept her for 8 years until she sadly passed away :( I highly recommend these cute little puffers for any brackish/saltwater tank, they act more like dogs than fish and have captivating personalities!"
