Oh, I will. *nods* 'S why I've been following your and John's threads so closely. :) Just not ready for it yet. I have a pile of bitty loachlings in QT, and five tanks is too many for me right now. When I get down to ONE, and nobody in QT, and the school tank is closed, AND I've done all my research. . . heh. . .THEN. Then I will have the Puffers to appear. For NOW, I'll just love on everyone else's!

Haha Jen it's a live one they definitely are Not interested in the frozen after seeing how they demolished the live ones! Think maybe they had a few too many, but that will hopefully be a one off as I learn more how to.feed them.
And he DID slurp in down like spaghetti! There's no chewing etc!!!! I'll try and vid it soon.... just wanted to get you guys a pic of them eating!
It's so cute now too... they chilling on leaves etc and 2 of them are under the twisted wood together.... its so small under there!


At 5 jes, you might as well have 6!

ok, I must be blind as a bat or you are pulling our legs that Squee is in that pic. If he is there, please someone tell me where to look.

Also, one we get the 75 done, I am going to have me a puffer after this. I have been in love with them for years. Only difference is I want only one that will get big, like a Green Spotted Puffer. A lone eventual 8" puffer sounds like a perfect addition to the family.

AWW! Is that his lil' eye I see peeking out from behind and between the stems? *SQUEEEE* Adorable! Unless that's just. . . some random green-ness. If so, I have no idea, either!

Hes in the centre. Not sure you can see his eye....just a part of his body.

What do people think about adding 2 cherry shrimp into the tank?
I think the puffers won't eat them- but they would eat the fry if there ever was any and obv keeps the tank clean.
Opinions please!!!!!

Um, I'd make sure there were lot's of hiding places in case the puffers decide to take a nibble, so that the shrimp can get away. The fry would provide a good constant food source.
