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.

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) :)

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!

Excuse my ignorance, but having never even seen a Dwarf Puffer before joining this forum I find mysef asking many for 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.

Very nice. That snail got eaten almost immediately. Didn't you say that the puffers eat the bloodworms but the leave their cases all over the tank floor?

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.
