Cool but, what's with that Abba sounding stuff in the background. Put some Lynyrd Skynryrd on. That will get the fish in the mood for chowin down.

They are savage little guys! But it's okay because they're so adorable :) He/She is circling those snails like a shark, that's so awesome. I always wondered how they got the snails out of their shells haha.

heeheehee... oh my. That's too cute. :) So. . .it doesn't look like they're actually crunching through the shells, but rather waiting for the snail to foolishly poke his head out and then. . . pecking at it. Poor snails! My rams get snitty with each-other when food is involved sometimes, too. Funny little fishies :)

Yes true. Now im not entirely sure if this will be a problem or not as unlike most puffers they have soft beaks. Was thinking of getting some REALLY small MTS, when i have a tray or something so they dont burrow, that they would have to crunch through. Need them really small as read that MTS are not great for them due to the soft beak, unless they are like 2mm.

And yes they certainly get snitty with each other. 99% of the time they are actuallky fine with each other though which is good! And theres no one bully, they all get it and hand it out! Even lil squee fights her corner

My rams are the same way, it's natural to them. Be interesting to see how things develop as your puffers age and hit maturity, etc. I'm still wondering if problems will arise in my tank if/when any of my rams pair up and start planning a family. I have MTS, I'm not sure how you'd get them to stay in a 'tray,' lol, but it's worth a try! I don't think they'd crack their shells, tho. My rams and/or loaches DO get to my younger MTS, but obviously their shells are left unscathed. . .

Well I know..... but how will I ever get them to crack em? It doesn't bother me.....just don't wa nt it to bother them! Meh, we'll see I guess.

Indeed. Though I wish you'd stood saying problems....your going to jinx me! Haha.
Hmm the rams.....I obviously don't have any but for what I know/ read.....once you have a pair.....you ONLY have the pair jn the tank? I might be wrong. There's another tank for you.... lol.

Yeah, a lot of people think that's the right way to go about keeping rams. But others don't - and they often happen to be people who keep them as I do - in a shoal. I have enough tanks to move them should there ever be a problem - so far, nearly a year later, we're still doing well. No pairings, but they've all hit maturity, so *crosses fingers* Same goes for the Puffers, so I'm interested in watching how it goes.

Happy feeding!
