Awww! You be NICE to that wife of yours *shakes fist* At least she tried! And I can make out at least ONE puffer! You know just how difficult tank photography is - much less trying to capture such bitty fish! I suppose this is proof positive once again that it's the photographer, not the camera, that captures the shot, lol! ;) Poor Wifey. . .

Haha! In all honesty though....our good camera is nackered and we're waiting for the right deal to buy a new one. I use my Samsung galaxy s3 for pics....she has a BlackBerry with the Worst camera......so it's not really her fault! Happy jes!?!?! Lol.
I'll grab some more pics when I get home actually now that it's super clean and nearly all of the algae has gone. Or hmm..... should I video them....hmm....eating time...hmm .. nah you don't deserve it..... haha

i always check the bucket anyway as they so small but glad i saw her! Scary moment though....my heart stopped!
LoL this has happened to me a couple of times. The lil buggers are soo small they just go right up the tube and out.

A bit of advice though. Puffers should never be netted and pulled out of the water.
I do have to admit I have done this several time lots actually until I read that puffers when scared will obviously puff up and if they do this out of the water this means they have just sucked up air into their system. This can be deadly to them as its much much harder for them to get the air out then water. You will know when this happens as they float at the surface and can't swim down. I now net them and put them into a cup of water while still in the tank under water.

Haha, it's okay, hon! We ALL make mistakes! I've gotten my loaches lost in my filter - TWICE! Lessons need be learned, and I'm SURE you'll never do it again :) And, hopefully I won't, either! The IMPORTANT thing is that the poor little bugger came through the ordeal just fine! So no beating yourself up! He knew he was in good (if inexperienced) hands, and kept his puffings to himself!

Have you ever SEEN them puff up? I think I remember John saying that he hadn't. . . how common IS it for the lil' peas?

Vids, please. But not if you're going to go all dictator and try to dangle it over our heads. I won't do jumping jacks or anything - but I'd LOVE to see the little guys nomming their spaghettis! SOOOO CUTE!

Great piccies above, btw - did your wife take 'em ;)

DAMN they're cute...
