Awesome! How many are you getting? You still have one from before, right?

Its awesome been wanting more for awhile now since I have figured out some learning errors on my part. I just had the store order 3 more. I don't want too many in the tank even though they are small. I will try to post some pics tomorrow!

That's a nice big tank you're keeping them in. My three are stuck in a small 10 gallon aquarium. Still no signs of aggression, but I want to add some plants to thicken it up a little.

Looking forward to see your new guys tomorrow!

OMG!!! I got my puffers today they are in my tank (still in the bag) trying to get them use to my water temp and parameters. They are BABIES!!!!!!! I was so NOT excepting them to be babies. I am not sure what to do here. I am worried about my filter as it is a Fluval U1. I can't really cover up the intake unless I wrap the whole filter???? Ugh and I don't know what to feed them they are soo tiny!

OMG THEY'RE SOOOOOOO CUTE!!! I love them! I have no advice for you, obviously - as I've never kept them, but *SWOOOOOONS* for the cuteness! Good luck with the babies!!!

Is the big one paying any attention to the babies?

Could you let the little ones nibble on a bloodworm held with tweezers maybe? I have no idea what to feed them when they are that small.

I saw a home made filter cover on site that was just an aquaclear sponge cut to fit over the end of the intake. I was going to do it if I needed to with the puffers, but I just turned my filter down to low and they're big enough that it hasn't been an issue. Pretty good idea for those little guys though.
