GSP Wannabe - Never Done Brackish

I'm currently in the process of getting my 10 & 75 FW up and going and have completely fallen in love with GSPs. I have a 20 gallon tall that I would like to set up as a home for a single GSP but I have never done brackish. Are there any articles on everything I'd need to set up a home for this little one? It'll be quite some time before I can actually get it set up and get everything for it due to my other tanks and being on budget but I'd like to start learning now.

Thanks everyone!

Making sure, but assuming you're talking about the Green Spotted Puffer?

There are lots of good articles about them. They need more than 20 gallons though and tend to be rather aggressive so keep that in mind as it may mean a large tank for a singular fish.

Here's a pretty decent article: The Green Spotted Puffer Fish: Care, Feeding and Tank Setup

Google 'GSP care' and read several different ones, there are a lot of opinions out there and you can get a good sense of the average care from taking in seperate information.

They can be pretty rough for people who have never owned them or anything like them. I had one for a short period before realizing there is little in the 'brackish' catagory that works well with them.
