    I'd think that the puffers would likely be the victors in that scenario, though I'm not sure.

    Yeah, I don't think the crab would have a chance.

    this is not a fish for a begining fish keeper and will require extra weekly maintnance. they need a steady diet of snails or there teeth will grow so long they will kill it. they need a minimum of 20 gallons you cannot keep any other fish with it. Pufferfish are extremly aggressive they will eat fish twice their size, it could possibly eat the crab if not fed properly they eat twice a day and are very messy fish to keep , shame because they are nice looking fish ,,,

    They wouldn'y fight....The puffer would eat the crab one bite at a time.
