Do puffers really puff up or are they just called puffers? and if they do what causes them to do so? Im thinking of starting a brackish 55gal and was just curious.

yup, they puff. They puff up to make themselves look bigger in the eye of a predator. Don`t make them do it though. It`s very stressful. Imagine how you would feel if you thaught it was your last option before becoming someone`s meal.

There`s lots of noise to filter through but lots of good info too.

it's not too easy to get them to puff. it takes a lot of aggrivation to get them to do it, and it really hurts them. don't try it.
