    If you pick them up in your hand they will likely puff up.

    Their spines arn't poisonous are they? I mean like their body is? Cause you know if you eat it and its cooked wrong you usually die.....or somtimes go into a state of living death!

    There are many species of puffers out there. I still wouldn't eat one, but if I remember correctly, what she has are harmless to pick up.

    Puffing is a major stress response... you don't usually want to encourage major stress in fish.

    I always wanted a puffer tank, or a 5g bumblebee goby tank. I will probably try one once my 46g is completed and my shrimp breeding tank is up and running.

    Funny thing is that I have never seen those dwarf puffers 'puff', even when those people at the stores scoop them out with nets. Maybe I should stop stareing at other peoples purchases and mind my own business [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] . Zongyi
