lol i'd have to watch that when my boy feeds bloodworms he'll hold them let the betta slap them outta his finger he might not like the puffer but make him a little tougher though. so if i got like a 20-30 gallon bow front tank a couple puffers an a bottom feeder would be good? what kind of catfish or pleco goes good with puffers

Only 1 (full grown) would work good in a 20-30g. These guys get like 6 inches long and about as fat around (possibly more). As for tankmates.... none. These are a solo fish. if you put any other fish in with them it will, no ifs and or buts, end up dead. Your boy might end up with missing fingers if he tries to feed a full grown puffer by hand.

2 full grown would work well in a 55g. Was that the question? o.o

As I'm typing this my GSPs are watching the computer screen and tripping out on my music. xD

2 in a 55! :] They just need plenty of places to hide/explore as they get bored pretty easily (mark of intelligence? :P)

genius !!!! hyperactive people are smarter in a way just like fish.it's a disorder in humans but i don't think these fish have mental issues.
