Back read a bit through this and have myself bee looking into a tank of Colomesus asellus. Liked them as for one they would be different than my Carinotetraodon travancoricus. Nice to have little and large.

On another note as it came up.....i have been looking at Carinotetraodon irrubesco and Carinotetraodon salivator for my empty 15G tank. But still as yet undecided what to do there. Theres too many gorgeous puffers out there!
And seeing as i cant have the fish in my wish list till i get a MUCH bigger (read 7/8ft) tank, and seeing as how much i love my lil puffers, think i might end up with more than one species and tank!

LoL getting stretched like a rubber band! Oh it doesn't necessarily feel good either. Then he had to still adjust my back. Yeah going to be sore the rest of the day. Especially since I woke up that way!

I meant/needed to do a water change today but that didn't happen due to everything else. The stupid massive storm messed that up!

Ohh Carinotetraodon salivator is one of my favourite puffers if not my favourite! I LOVE the way they look. I have never seen them available here though. No one carries them around me and the stores supposed don't stock them either as I have checked. So next would have to be ordering them for myself online some where. Don't know where though. As they are hard to come by in the states.
If you get some you have to let me know how they are and pics will be a must! LoL

Colomesus asellus are pretty as well but they require a bigger tank then just a 10 I think which the only tank I have empty other then a 40 breeder but I have nothing to setup that tank.

Ooh they'd be happy in a 40GB! You could have a few there!
Play sand, and grow all your off cuts of plants in there! Think, well fairly certain, thats my plan with my empty 15, get the sand in and start growing all my off cuts in there, then just keep going and going........ until i have puffer babies/new mini puffers for it.

Carinotetraodon salivator though..........so beautiful. I'll speak to my LFS about them and see what they say. They have a really good breeder/collector from wild that might get some on his next trip etc. Worth an ask anyway..........as something that rare would definitely be worth having and trying to breed for the good of fish keepers!

It would be awesome if they could get some Carinotetraodon salivatorfor ya! I would certainly ask. I have constantly check the suppliers website for them and have yet to seen them. :(

My 40b doesn't have a stand, lid, filter, or lights. LoL I basically got the tank and got it super cheap from a friend who never used it. One day I will set it up (hopefully).

Well on a different note I managed to get my water changes done today. My Scarlet Badis seems to be soo happy as they were swimming around the tank more afterwards! The Puffer as usual wanted to check out siphon and wouldn't leave it alone. Tomorrow hopefully I can get some new pics of the tanks up.

I am fixen to run out the door to go to work but just another update. I got my Scarlet badis to eat Walter worms just now! Super glad they are eating something besides blackworms.

Oh that reminds me. I went to feed my puffer some blackworms and I have bunches now LoL. They have exploded anyways to the point I found a Bladder snail in my blackworm tote! LoL that's soo funny as I have no clue how the lil bugger got in there.

I shot a couple of pics and will try to post them later.

Pshew! Sounds like you've had a rough week over there! Glad to hear things have calmed down, and that the lil' Gems were okay with the delayed water change. It's always so nerve-wracking when stuff happens and you have to let the fish wait it out for a bet - especially when they're sensitive/tiny/new/fussy guys like the Badis. To be honest, I don't know how you manage the tanks around that crazy schedule of yours, but I'm sure glad you do! You have some amazing animals over there. I can't wait to see you get one of the bigger tanks up and running. I'm still lamenting the loss of the 29 - that tank was so gorgeous. Meh, it is what it is. I really hope you find those black and red puffers. I'll keep my eye out for you, too - but I've also never seen them anywhere online or IRL. You never do know! I think we all have our own little 'holy grail' fish that we'll be watching out for forever. Hopefully we all get them one day - even if it only means that they will be replaced with another, harder to find, fish :)

Just saw your last update, lol. Weird about the snail, but huzzah for the worms rebounding, and the Badis moving on to new foods. CAN'T wait for the pics!

Oh Jes you know how I told I though I killed my micro/Walter worms. Nope!! LoL they made a huge come back. Yeast and oatmeal is the answer! Doesn't stink to bad yet either.

The next pic to me looks way better on my phone and is one of the best shots I have gotten of my puffer. I think its really cool looking to me but looking on the computer now its doesn't look as good (maybe my moniter I am on too).

The last two are of my live blackworms. They have exploded in the last couple of days. I started out with just a 1/4 of an ounce of these worms and have been feeding them to my fish too. So they are doing really well.
The funny part about today when i went to get some to feed to my puffer is I found a bladder snail just crawling along the substrate with the worms. LoL
I really don't know where he came from or how he got in there. I mean I have some in my other tanks but no clue how he got transferred.
