Do these guys get spooked for no reason? My guy puffed up lastnight for no reason, I turned off the light, then he calmed down. I have a huge hermit crab, thats almost the size of a baseball, that he always tries to eat. Could he just be worked up because he cant get a hold of this crab or what? The water level is fine as of a few days ago, so I think that should be ok.

Anyone with experience with a puffer, lmk, Its probably nothing, but Id like to know just to be safe.

I have kept brackish puffers on and off for several years, and have never see one puff up with out my messing with it (I know that is not nice).
Sorry that is the best I can tell you. If the puffer does this on a regular basis, then there could be something to be concerned about.

Well, mine has never puffed up BUT I have heard from people way more experienced with them then me that they do occasionally puff up for no apparent reason.
