Videos of My Dwarf Puffers

All of my patience paid off! I finally got my dwarf puffers!

I know my java moss is dying, I took it out for now and it's coming back to life in my 29 gallon.

by the way, i feed them half a cube of frozen bloodworms everyday (not even half) and a snail about 2 times a week.

YouTube - Dwarf Puffer Eats Snail
YouTube - My Dwarf Puffers Eating Bloodworms

I'm positive that one is a male (the smaller one) and 90% sure that the big one is too,

Their names are Twister and Green (named after the two people that helped me out a lot) :)

One 29 Gallon - Lots of Fish
One 10 Gallon - One White Crayfish
One 15 Gallon - Baby Bullfrogs

Aww, my names Twister!

Your tank looks great and the puffers adorable! I had never thought to use a cup for the bloodworms, great idea!
Do they both have wrinkles in their eyes? With mine, I could not tell so much by the markings, but only one had the eye wrinkles.

The small one has wrinkles but I still can't tell with the big one. I'll try to look harder!

Yay, you finally got them! Such cute little buggers. Nice vids.

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

Excuse my ignorance, but having never even seen a Dwarf Puffer before joining this forum I find mysef asking many questions....like for example...how big will they get...are the ones in the video still babies? The shear size (or lack of) of the ones in your video have shocked me...

cool videos :)
dwarf puffers are so cute.

sub. they won't really grow too much bigger,however don't be foled by their size,
they can be nasty little blighters,and should be in a species tank only.

MXS. i wish you the very best of luck with them.

they need to be kept together,too risky to add other fish,you may get away with otto cats,
however it's a chance you take.
