    I have a giant spotted puffer thats kept in 1.010 low hardness. I do weekly 40% water changes , have a stronger filter than I need, and leave the tank heavily decorated. It seems to sit on the bottom quite a bit, a friend of mine said that because of its shape it could be perfectly normal. He is very healthy and eats like a champ. I feed every other day frozen krill, on the off days i give him small madagascar snails. He is about 3 inches long and lives in a 30gal at the moment.
    He gets along with some of my GSPs fine, he is WAY less aggressive also. Hope the info helps for your study.
