South American Puffers eating

This is a link to my vid of my SAPs. I have 3 in a 36 gallon bowfront tank
Had for about a month. The one is eating eggs that a Cory had just laid.

If you think I am too abrasive there is a little triangle icon in the bottom left of your screen to "report post".

thanks. I was worried he was going to burst after eating so much. I had fed him a few black worms before the Cory started laying eggs. He ate and ate!

I'm curious, is your tank brackish, or does it have typical Amazonian parameters?

My tank is freshwater. My pH hovers around 7.2-7.5.
The GH is around 10 and the KH is around 4
For substrate I just recently switched from colored gravel to Eco-Complete Planted Aquariums.
And for plants I wasn't overly picky about matching their environment but I do have 2 amazon swords. And a few other smaller plants.
Also a piece of mopani driftwood.
The puffer seem to be doing well. Only had for about a month and a half. They are growing. Both long and round haha.
Feel free to ask anything else. I'm new to offers and this tank is just put together on what I've read, already known, and what looked good to me.

SAPs are strictly FW puffers... do not add salt to the tank unless you're treating fro Ich or Velvet.

I am on well water so I have liquid rock in my tanks. South American waters are fairly soft compared to Europe and North America.
