Depends on species and size. I used a 15 l with an external filter and heater. That worked perfectly, the puffer is a bit miserable but allowed me to treat with copper quickly and easily (or hypo). I changed at least 20% -50% water a day for two weeks.
As above for a 4-5inch or less porcupine puffer, a larger specimen will need 30l plus.
freshwater dips also don't work, but the puffer seems to enjoy it. Day in the spa I guess, for 30 mins with RO PH balanced.
