oh man that sucks, From the looks of that tank the puffer probably wouldn't have last long anyways.

Anyone know what kind of puffer that was?

Damn, some would say 'it's nature' but that's pretty stupid, putting a Puffer in a tank with that amount of fish and a large lobster.

I think it was a baby F8?

What an idiot! That tank was way overcrowded to begin with. The puffer looks like a Milkspotted, which is SW. And the guy just sat there & continued filming after the lobster grabbed the puffer!

I watched it this morning, and I agree, very stupid. I thought maybe the puffer got "grabbed" and got away. I was very saddened to see that cute puffer meet his demise after all he'd been through to get to that tank. Totally overstocked! Ridiculous guy! I know he didn't intend that, but really?
