yah the puffers about a fat 2 inches lol, and yes i certainly did learn my lesson, they just looked so cool and pleasant ha, and at the LFS they dont really label them as aggressive or community like petstores and i was afraid the shark would b gone if i left lol. oh well. Im just going to continue using the tank separator for a quick short tiem fix with teh puffer on a side alone, and for now the shark is ok cuz the only time he even gets close to my fish is during feeding time cuz hes blind and all he mistakes them but doesnt bite or n e thing. so soon this problem will be solved. my favorite fish is my pleco n e way so as long as hes ok im ok lol.

The benefit of a forum like this one is being able to obtain good advice from thoise who have learned the hard way, and thereby provide the best care for your fish. In this light I hope you will accept my suggestion as being in the best interest of your fish.

The shark is a fish I would recommend you return to the store; most good fish stores will accept returns, some for credit. They know we get ourselves into predicaments, and they would prefer your continued business. I recommend this because this fish is not a suitable one for community tanks, and as it grows to more than 10 inches it requires considerably more tank space than you can provide for it at present. And a potentially large fish in small quarters when young will cause "stunting" as the fish grows, leading to internal organ problems, poor health, and certain early death. Also it is rather specific in its requirements, and when fish are kept in unsuitable tanks (to them) they develop a number of health issues. The fish deserves a proper environment.

You can find more info on this species at Planet Catfish.
