The Green Spotted Puffer does not have gill covers or scales which make it more prone to disease. Puffers are normally the first fish in a tank to show signs of ick and will twitch and rub around the tank. They respond well to most medication and normally heal quickly. NEVER use copper in a Puffer tank.Another common issue, though not a disease; Puffer's teeth grow very fast and if not wore down or clipped will lead to overgrowth and starvation. In an aquarium; even when feeding snails and other shelled foods, there is still normally a chance you will have to trim their teeth. This sound much worse then it is. To accomplish this carefully place puffer in a container of water without exposing them to the air. Add 3 drops of clove oil per liter of water; this will temporarily sedate the puffer so you can hold the puffer in your hand more easily. You will need cuticle clippers; use these to clip bottom and top teeth. Once done put puffer in a container or net that will have the current flowing over them. Once awake release back into tank.Because the Green Spotted Puffer is wild caught it could carry internal parasites. So if it hasn't been done, a de-worming would be smart.

My tank turned green all the way back in December. I didn’t know why or how but it did. I used algae remover, that was a temporary fix as it just came right back. I tried putting a blanket over my tank for a whole week without feeding my fish or even peeking in the tank. That made it translucent, but green never-the-less.
I took my tank down, new water gravel sponge, everything! I even reduced the lighting in the tank by half. Some how some way in found it’s way back to green. During water changes I noticed that the water coming out was more concentrated than the water in my tank. So I scrubbed the bottom of my tank and the water started to clear up again. However once again it grew back. I tried raising the temperature and lowering it, neither one helped.
However miraculously one day out of the blue, well my tank turned BLUE!!!! I really don’t know why or how or if it will ever go back to green. But I’ve been green free for almost a month now, even when I leave the light on for 8 hours a day!!
I now have live plants, elodea and sword, and my fish are healthier than ever!! I have three GREEN SPOTTED PUFFER FISH in the same tank and somehow they are getting along just fine.

The main problems are usually high nitrate and phosphate levels. If you have a saltwater aquarium consider using a and . Avoid placing your aquarium where it could receive direct sunlight.

In some areas, the tap water is naturally high in phosphates.
