FW pufferfish

hey all,

anyone has had experiences keeping freshwater pufferfish from the amazon?

i just felt bad for these poor things (Colomesus asellus or psittacus?) at the pet shop since the idiots were keeping them in a brackish tank so i took them home but all they do is swim around the corners of the tank trying to escape.  i know these are true freshwater fish, not brackish.  today i fed them strips of frozen fish but i haven't seen them eat it yet.  hopefully they'll have eaten it by the time i get home...  not sure why they seem so uncomfortable as they swim endlessly at the corners.  the tank is planted so they can hide for protection.

any tips on how to take care of them very much appreciated.
