My advice would if not already done treat for Internal parasites. Chances are he has some and if they start to effect him it's much harder to treat. Precautionary treatment rocks

I breed apple snail in a 50ltr tank. Keeping the water fresh the produce more than enough to feed a couple of SAPs. I also have cherry shrimp breeding with them. Gives the puffer something to chase every so often
My tap water is currently very soft. On the mains it varies here. It is 4 dkh. Tge tank is for my fahaka and heavily planted. I would ideally like this to come up to 7/8 dkh. Can anyone suggest a good hardener. I am using aquador but I could put the whole tub it would seminars with little change.

Welcome, I love brackish set ups I have had some great brackish fish (mud skippers, dragon gobies, archers etc), no brackish tanks at the moment but a developing marine tank for the first time.

Chances are the fish is currently in freshwater in the shop. If so starting him in freshwater with the established freshwater media and some safe start should be ok. Lots of water changes and clean out uneaten food. You can add salt slowly using a hydrometer to bring the salt levels up over time. If...

its a general antibacterial water additive - tea tree based (from the smell) good for cuts and abrasions in aquarium fish. Might be sore on the eye and as its a marine puffer the salt will do the same job most likely. How is he looking today?
