What is a puffer fish?
Pufferfish are a popular fish in the aquarium trade, but many people are not familiar with their cleaning needs. A pufferfish is an air-breathing fish that can inflate its stomach to store gas and then expel it as a weapon or defense. This ability makes them susceptible to intestinal blockages, which can be cleaned using the following steps:
1) Gently clean the fish with warm water and mild soap.
2) If necessary, use a vacuum cleaner to remove any debris or parasites.
3) Allow the fish to dry completely before re-homing.
How do you clean a puffer fish?

Submerge the puffer fish in the water and gently scrub all surfaces of the fish with your hands. Be sure to get into all the nooks and crannies. Rinse the fish several times in cool water. Finally, use a net or towel to dry it off.
What to do if you get poison ivy on a puffer fish?
If you get poison ivy on a puffer fish, the best course of action is to rinse it off as quickly as possible and then dry it off.

If you’ve ever owned or kept a puffer fish, then you know that they need to be cleaned regularly. Puffer fish are high in toxins and can contain dangerous levels of mercury and other heavy metals. To clean your puffer fish, first make sure that it is completely dry. Next, pour some Dawn dishwashing liquid into a large bowl and add enough water to cover the fish. Swish the water around until the dishwashing liquid is completely dissolved, then place the puffer fish in the bowl and let it soak for at least 30 minutes. After soaking, remove the fish from the solution and rinse it off with cold water. Finally, pat it dry with a paper towel
