The otos, amano and lone remaining puffer are all fine, but sure did give me a scare.
Now to find somewhere I can get a replacement puffer...
Tappy sorry to hear about your female! I recently changed my filter on my puffer tank to a Ehiem canister as I keep reading that you should run 10x gph for the tank when housing these little guys. Well I was also told they would be fine with a filter like this. I took the advice hooked up the filter with some modification and ran it. The next day I found one of my lil guys stuck in the filter intake. I knew in my heart that it was bad advice but I went with for some reason. That same day I put a sponge on the intake.
