Remodel

Had to do some remodeling since I.got rid.of the Angel and I am having my LFS order me some more puffers. They needed more hiding places and things to break the line of sight.

I love PUFFERS!!! OMG, I'm jealous!

It really sucks about the angels - that whole story made me very, very sad - but PUFFERS!!! *SQUEEEE* One day, I will have puffers! I can't wait to see where this tank ends up. :)

I love DWL, too - but it does NOT like my 55g. it WAS doing okay, but it didn't like the water movement in there, I guess. I have it in the Betta tank, and it's doing great in there. I have such trouble with floaters, lol!

Keep posting on this little guy - and his soon-to-be friends. I want to know ALL ABOUT them! Good luck!

Jes I have had puffers since the day I started out keeping fish (which hasn't been long LoL). I have one little guy left from the original group. Through trial and error I lost some puffers due to my filter/s on different tanks they were in. http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/f...-advice-67555/ my old thread about them. Invertplanet if he is still an member here is very knowledgeable about puffers. I just haven't seen him in a long time. You can also check out Dwarfpuffers.com it has lots of info on that site.

Ooh, I'll look into that thread! I (like so many others) fell in love with these guys the moment I laid eyes on them. One day, I intend to keep them, though not just yet. . . such cool fish. I'd have to get my water right for them first, anyway. From time to time soft water is a pain ;) Oh, wait. . . these are the ones that are okay with soft, right? LOL! You can tell I'm nowhere near ready for them, but ONE day! I WILL HAVE SOME PUFFERS TO APPEAR!!! Good luck, hon!

My dwarf puffers have quickly become some of my favorite fish. They swim out to the glass when they see us, and one of them has this blinking thing going on that makes it look like he is winking at us.

They are very aggressive eaters and two of them once had a tug of war over a blood worm.

What and how often do you feed yours?

I have been feeding them bloodworms every other day as per my LFS' suggestion.

I feed mine once a day about 3 or 4 worms

though to be honest I generally end up missing a day though the week and don't feed on water changing days. Just our curiosity why did they tell ya once every other day?

Don't know. Maybe just because they're messy eaters? I should really ask. They probably explained at the time and I just don't remember now.
