Re: Converting Freshwater Tank to Brackish Water Tank

Okay thanks, I will check it out. The reason I asked where you were in Maryland is that's my birth state. I was born in Baltimore, but lived in Pasadena, Anne Arundel County. Haven't been to Maryland since 2000 ... but have fond memories. I also lived for about 5 years down below Cambridge, on the C...

Re: Converting Freshwater Tank to Brackish Water Tank

Yeah, I don't mean to sound stupid ... but I'm a bit lame when it comes to math. So anything that explains things easily is good for me. And I no longer have a thing to gauge specific gravity, so I really need something simple. What part of Maryland are you from Hillehaus, if you don't mind me asking?

Converting Freshwater Tank to Brackish Water Tank

Hey, it's been a while since I've had a brackish puffer. I keep mudskippers, which are brackish, but they are different in that I can make up the water to the strength it needs to be and they are okay with it. I have just recently gotten a little Figure 8 puffer and as he came from a supplier that k...

Re: Worming My Congo Puffer

So you don't think puffers absorb medications through their skin at all? If they are so sensitive to chemicals, I think they must .... and it's worked before, but we'll see. I have never had good results dosing food, as the puffer usually doesn't eat it.

Worming My Congo Puffer

So I've had my Congo puffer just less than a month (got him 14 November), and I did a worming with praziquantel immediately, even though he wasn't showing any real effects from parasites. I did notice that ever since having him, he wouldn't open his tail, he would keep it very tightly closed, and he...

Re: New Arrivals Doing Well - Maybe

I think I may have been a bit premature with my previous posting. Last night I noticed what every puffer owner dreads and that's the "string of pearls" poop. It was in my Congo puffer's tank. I also noticed more this afternoon when I went up to have a look at him. Last night his belly was ...

New Arrivals Doing Well

So a couple of weeks ago I ordered a couple of puffers from a private seller who has a license to buy wholesale. Turns out it was a great deal. Not only were the puffers priced so much lower than any fish store or fish delivery service, but I got to go and pick up the puffers myself, so not as much ...

That is typical of the immaturity I have found with Facebook groups, the only ones I feel sorry for are the poor puffers who find themselves in their care. :(

Re: Back After Long Absence

They aren't worth it Jeni .... because I couldn't pick up a Leiurus puffer when the guy wanted, he sold it for £3!!!! And it's not just that, it's someone saying he had a GSP in a 10-gallon tank and no one chastised him for it but me. And much more stupid stuff. I know people have to learn, but come...

Re: Back After Long Absence

I had joined a group on Facebook about puffers and it's difficult for me to handle some of the advice being given to people, so thought I should get back to a REAL group that knows what puffers need and want. Happy to be here. :)

Hadla that mantis shrimp is very cool, love it!!
And Sgtmyers88, your big guy is beautiful, and I love your disclaimer at the bottom about puffers being mischievious little blimps .... I understand that all too well. :)

Salivator Puffer Or ANY Puffs Anywhere in North UK?

Hi, Years ago I had a lovely salivator puffer that unfortunately jumped out of my tank and died. I haven't seen any since that time. Does anyone know of any or any shops that stock them anywhere in the north of the UK (I am based in Doncaster, but might travel)? I am also always looking for any fres...
