Talking Bored Puffer

So my little Green spotted puffer gets bored very easy... anything I can give him to keep him active and interested. I rearrange his tank once a week but after a few days he goes back to pacing. It is a brackish tank at 1.010 sg right now and rising so any plants wouldnt work. All I have is rocks and sand right now lol poor fella.

You could use silk plants. That would really help him, even if you dislike the way they look.

Petco has a line of "Betta" plants which are really soft and have weighted "rock like" bases so you don't have to try to get them to stay down. I have one, and it looks really nice. I know that Petco also has some larger silk plants, and although I don't have them, I saw them in the store and they look really nice. Here are some links.

Here's the one I have-

This one would go really well with the one just above.

They also have tons more. They usually put some other silk plants in the suggested items box. I hope you find something you like!
