yes I have. :) its a great site for information and habitat. I never realized how addicting fishtanks can get! I gotta slow down and get plants and let them grow first. :-/ lol I decided to get the Giant Hygrophila x6 for now and slowly add more plants then fish.

it sounds like it'll turn out really cool. i'd love a planted tank, but i can never keep them alive!

This will be my first planted tank so I am a little worried but I figured I'd dive right in and see how I do? I am good with normal plants and pets. *fingers crossed on this though* :)

hi
what a fantasic size tank for your puffers.
fun fish to own,with oodles of feisty personality when they reach maturity.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

My lfs just told me that Giant Hygrophila is illegal to sell now along with the Green Hygrophila. They consider it a weed in MN. :( Now I am back to square one. Anyone have any ides for a larger plant. :(

well puffers need dense planting since I am going to have about 8 of them in there so taller plants for the back of the tank that give plenty of cover
