I've been a contract worker for a long time now, but with the economy the way it is, I have finally settled down with a regular job...as a reward for this, I am going to set up my first aquarium in years. So I consider myself a newbie.
Ive been fascinated with some of the smaller puffer fish. Unfortunately after doing my research I see they are fairly agressive. Despite knowing this I still seem to want to have puffers in my aquarium. I would like to include some other types of fish, but I really dont want to start a cycle of fin nipping and aggression.
Ive heard that fast moving fish (Barbs, some tetras and glass fish) can do well with wellfed puffers in an appropriate sized tank.
Can someone give me some suggestions? I really do like the little dwarf puffers, but they really do seem a bit difficult to handle, I see some reports of great fish and others of just carnage in the aquarium....
Thanks in Advance! I will be setting up my tank in the beginning of april, so probably stocking it in May but, thinking ahead of course. :D
