Yea they do, but that is at a more mature state. I will move him to a 30g tank in about a year.

Hello! Welcome to the forum!

The puffer is not picking on your other fish?
I have not owned one, maybe they are not as mean as I think they are.
Your tank looks very nice!

Hi There! Welcome to the forum.
Your tank looks really nice. Llike everyone else I'm unsure about the puffer being in there but he sure is cute. Your plants look very healthy. What kind of rocks do you have in there? I like them
Are those real seashells you have in there??

(You're a little heavy on the stocking side for a 10gl.)

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

I love the way you decorated that tank! If those seashells are real they may raise your pH though. Your plants look really healthy as well :)

20 gallon long: 3 adult Neolamprologus similis + about 11 fry of various ages; low light planted tank
20 gallon long:2 freshwater dwarf puffers (Puff Puff and Poofer); medium-light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Wormy; low light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Dante; low light planted tank
2, 5.5 gallon tanks that are currently empty (I see more fish on the horizon )

well so far the puffer hasn't even nibbled the other fish, he is more scared of them right now. I know my tank is a little over populated but i do 30% water changes every week. My water is clear and all of the fish are happy.

I just started a snail breeding tank today to start having the food for the puffer fish (aka puff daddy). I have around 40 snails right now and i am sure they will breed like mad men so I am sure he will have plenty of food.


I will keep everyone posted on the progress of the tank and puffy.
