Welcome to AC....glad you learned about the sharks...but did you also know the GSP may not do too well either. They are recommended for a brackish tank....prefering full marine conditions as adults....and minimum 30 gal....not suggested as community fish. What are you feeding it by the way? You might want to consider joining those of us that have MTS syndrome and adding to your tank collection to start separating fish that don't need to be together!

Hi and welcome to the forum. I had a green spotted Puffer, they do need brackish which isn't hard just more expensive. The set up is the same as for fresh water you just add instant ocean (or the brand you prefer) and get a hydrometer (to measure the salt in the water). Start slow and built up to where you want the salinity to be. The older they get, the saltier the water. They are great fish. They can hypnotize you into feeding them, lol. Plus, if you have a sail problem in any of your other aquarium, they make great puffer treats.
