@Gwen...
I dont know what it is, but every shoaling fish I have ever gotten on sale at Petsmart has died within 24 hours too!!! I think they put them on sale because maybe they have been exposed to a disease or ammonia spike just high enough to kill them sooner. I dont know, its just creepy.
Although my loaches were all 99cents on sale and I have luckily had the same 10 since purchase a couple of months ago *knocks on wood*.
Glad to hear that it is coming along...I cant wait for pics of those rams!!!
Thanks for the compliments too!!!
Hope all is well with you!!!

Sad news...
This evening one of my female dwarf puffers died. While I was napping, she got into a fight with my male after I put in some fresh snails (over a dozen), and he bit a chunk out of her face including her upper lip and her forehead. Now I am just down to a m/f pair.

I am sorry you lost one of your puffers. They are neat little fish I use to have one and it was neat to watch him eat. Your tank looks really nice.

Thanks for the support guys and gals, it means a lot.
The remaining two are doing well.
I knew the fighting could happen between them, but I followed all the rules...
5 gallons per puffer
Plenty of plants, hiding, and interesting places to explore
Frozen bloodworms and live snails, put in the tank in separate areas to ensure they all three had their own feeding space.
I guess my male is just a major butthole. I see him bully the remaining female any time she gets close to a snail or bloodworm if she is withing viewing area of him. Yet, they seem to stay rather close to each other.
I dont know.

Hey Amanda,
Mine always stay close to each other usually all four of them LoL. At feeding time though mine are alittle different. My girls always seem to out number the male. He is usually the last to get any food. When it comes to food aggressive its my girls that rule LoL. Now my male seems to "harass" them when he is after a female to breed. The other day I found him and a female "stuck" under my driftwood. I don't think they were actually stuck since they manged to get in there. They probably could have gotten out but I picked up the driftwood anyways cause my wife was yelling at me "You smashed my fish! You smashed my fish! Get them out!" LoL I told her I didn't do that all I did was fix my filter. LoL They were both fine so I think that was the case either way it was kinda funny. The fight might not been over the food it might have been the male wanting a little action from the female and she was not willing. I know my male can get a little mean then and nips but it looks more like he is pushing or "kissing" (for a lack of a better word) then nipping. Just a thought.
