Green Spotted Puffer Brackish Tank.

RaqThar

Hi everyone.
Some context: been wanting a pufferfish for a while now but due to where i live there isnt much of a variety of fish. Recntly 2 GSP have been brought in and I have reserved 1. Ive done a lot of research into them but this will be my first brackish water tank so I am a bit nervous about it. Right now I have been setting up an 8.5 gallon tank and yes i know its small but the fish is about 2 inches right now. I have been waiting about 1.5 years for this fish. Hopefully in 4-6 months time i will be able to get a 30 - 40 gallon tank becuase as I said where I live its a bit of an issue to get such things. My question is this acceptable for the fish to live in temporaly and is the set up fine?
Right now its going through a bacterial bloom, that is why the water is not clear.
And the tank is at 1.001 for salt, is this also good enough for a baby GSP? Also i will be trying to get some more brackish water friendly plants before I get the fish.
Any advice welcome.

It looks okay, once you get the puffer you can start raising the salinity very slowly until around 1.004 or so over the course of a week or two.
You mentioned it's hard to get stuff, are you using marine salt mix?

I will slowly raise the salinty because as of now the fish at store are at 1.000. Also yes I am using marine salt. Its easy to get stuff like that, its just the fish, aquariums and plants that are hard to get.
