The dwarf puffer should not be maintained with other fish. First, many other fish will bully them to death, literally; and second, some puffers can be more aggressive to any other fish.

It is best in a small group, say 3 or more if space permits. Three in a well planted 10g is a good setup. Lots of plants essential.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Amazons are in with the RTS, so far so good.

3 Dwarf Puffers are in the 10 gallon. They're so small, they're hard to spot.

I'm going to get more plants for both tanks, probably Wednesday.
