And remember that just because you can keep it in a small tank? Doesn't mean you should.

Puffers typically need 5-10gal at a minimum to thrive.

Even Boraras brigittae need more than 2.5gal, though they can certainly live and be okay in the tank. While a dozen of them would still look small in the tank, they do best with more swimming room.

Your best bet is shrimp.
