With a planted tank, 5-10 nitrate is ideal for the plants. I don't find too many issues with mine. Ammonia and nitrites are the key for them...they need to be kept at 0 at all times. I've noticed if they start showing up at all, the puffs will change colors and act stressed. My plants do a pretty good job keeping everything balanced tho....Planted is the way to go with them! :)

Awwwww! They're so sweet, looks like they're doing well now, and settling in?

Plants and DP pretty much go hand-in-hand, if you want happy fish, anyway. ESPECIALLY if you keep more than one of them! They're very sensitive lil' fish - and can be aggressive if their sight-lines aren't broken up. . . one day, I WILL have puffy ones! For now, I'll just love on Tappy's! ^__^
