I like your tank, and your video. I have actually caught puffer fish in brackish water many years ago up in Delaware, in the Indian River. How long have you been keeping your puffers in this tank? In nature they can move in and out of saltwater, I am concerned that being out of saltwater all the time could affect their health.

Isn't amazing/wonderful what you can find there. That being said, I'd be concerned about the long term health of some puffers in a strictly brackish environment.

that tank would be to small for the puffer since in another one of his videos I think he said it was around 20 gallons the tank but I am not sure star and stripes puffers get 50cm long and need at least 150 gallons
