could go a GSP and some BBG's just plain to upgrade as puffers will outgrow it. Use RO water, and instant ocean salt and need a hydrometer. Most Brackish water fish, need live or frozen foods. GSP=Green SPotted Puffer and BBG=Bumble Bee Gobies. Use www.liveaquaria.com as reference to look theseup.

GSP will need a 30g fully marine tank eventually (they grow to 6") and will eat your molly. A f8 will grow to 3" and require an s.g. of around 1.005 and may not eat youy molly, if your lucky. Bumblebee gobies would be perfect requiring an s.g. of 1.005 or Knight gobies at an s.g. of 1.010.

GSP can live in a 30g for life 929g to) and not need to go full marine when adult,
High End Bracish will be ok for them as adults,
and this came right from PufferPunk awhile back to a post I started about GSP.

Dps arent brackish, even though many stores sell them as such. They are strictly freshwater.

^Pac-man, ashleythegreat was making a reference to a freshwater post i had made in the general section which focused on dwarf puffers. I don't belive she was stating that they are brackish

All i know right now is that i want a puffer. I am considering dwarfs, red eyes, or a figure 8. How large do figure 8s get? I heard their max size being stated as 3" and as 6". I also understand that the dwarfs are the easiest to keep as they don't need to eat mollusks or crustations for the propose of dulling their teeth(I'm unsure if red eyes need this). I know figure 8s do need to consume things like snails and "cockle"(what is cockle anyway) to dull their teeth but i'm up to the chalenge of keeping them because they are compatible with things like brackish gobies while young. Any opinions on this matter would be great, thanks
