Hello I have attached another pic this is of smaller darker one they do seem to be picking up with water changes just hoping I don't cause other probs doing this. can anyone explain why they look so different is it just a normal variation? Also could those be bit marks on its side?

Many thanks
Tram

Puffers

The look could be do to different lightin in your system versus the stores. That is my only guess or that they were feeding them something that enhanced their color versus what you are feeding them. Good to hear they are doing better though.

Hello
Both where different colours in my tank I have since lost the darker one! I fed them a cockle each Monday they swallowed them whole and had bulging tummys the dark one hid and didn't re appear until Wednesday am and was very dark and quiet whilst the lighter one was happy . then last night the dark one started make suden jerky movements the died ! Poor thing I am really not sure what I am doing wrong? the lighter one seems fine swimming around watching me and begging for food ! He did not bother the dark one no aggresivness . do you think the dark one was already poorly as I have read then darken with stress or illness the light one is now all alone what do you sugest i add to keep him company another Puffer or just keep him alone ?

many thanks
Tram

Can you post your water parameters again as updates?:) Fish that often becomes dark is usually stressed. I wouldn't buy another puffer. Puffers can live alone and to be safe, I wouldn't get another unless you have a quarantine tank where you can quarantine the new puffer for two weeks to a month.
