Re: Poisoned Tank

Well maybe you should consider what was going to happen to them if I hadn't taken them! (And this is why I rarely post on this forum, because it's mostly negative comments, not that I actually saved 2 puffers from certain death ... but hey, whatever).

Re: Poisoned Tank

I just wanted to give an update on my previously "poisoned tank". After doing a number of water changes and putting in two lots of the Poly Filter (which removes chemicals, etc. from the tank), my tank appears to be back to how it was before I ruined it and killed off two puffers. I was gi...

Re: Success Keeping Abei Puffer with Others?

Yeah, I think you're right. I was only curious if anyone had actually been successful. He was keen after the shrimp I put in and was really looking high and low for anything that moved. He's awfully cute though. It's weird my older Abei is so big and this new one is so small, you almost forget that'...

Success Keeping Abei Puffer with Others?

Has anyone had any success keeping their Abei puffer with any other living thing? Years ago I had an Abei, and I put a Bristlenose plec in with him to keep the tank clean and the puffer killed the plec (didn't eat it, just killed it). I have another Abei, and had him for many years and though he see...

Re: Poisoned Tank

No offense, but I'm not going to remove everything and clean the tank with bleach. Thing is, right now I've got a large population of cherry shrimp in the tank, and I also have plants that have taken me months to grow on. So I'd be throwing all of that out, and I just can't see doing that. I think w...

Re: Poisoned Tank

It's only been without a puffer since Sunday, the 24th ... would I have lost significant bacteria in that time? And if I do get another puffer, it won't be very big, as the only one's I can source are rather small. And if necessary, I can always remove another filter from one of my other tanks to up...

Re: Poisoned Tank

To be honest, I haven't had to do water measurements in years. All of my puffers are doing well, so I don't actually own a water test kit. As for temperature, all of my tanks run about 80F, some just under that temp. The reason I think it was the tile is because nothing's changed in that tank for 2 ...

Re: Poisoned Tank

I know, it was a stupid decision to put that tile in there ..... sometimes people just do stupid things. And trust me, I've regretted it after losing two puffers, and two that I cannot replace so easily either. I'm not sure what to do .... it's a lovely tank, very heavily planted, so I'd like to mak...

Poisoned Tank

Hey everyone. I have a situation I am hoping you can help me with. Last week a Cutcutia puffer I had died. He had been fine the evening before, eating and doing his normal thing. I had done a water change 2 days prior to his death. I had him for 2 years. And I thought he just died from natural cause...

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...
