Green spotted puffer care

Post by Lizzzi » Sat Feb 24, 2018 4:30 pm

I just got a GSP at our local pet store a week ago & he or she seems to be doing great. I have it in a small tank for now but I plan to transfer into one of my 30 gallon tanks. I wonder if I should use bottled spring water for the new tank or just use tap water with the water conditioner. Also I’m adding marine salt. I do have an already established tank with an African cichlid which I plan to move & maybe put GSP in his tank since it is already cycled. Although I would add salt. Does anyone have advice for which would be best? New tank with spring water & marine salt? Or already cycled tank with adding marine salt?
