There's one problem with that list .... well the one with the photos ... when it comes to miurus, that's not a Congo puffer in the photo, it's a Palembangensis, and it's funny because they show the correct photo for the Palembang. Just thought I would point that out. :lol:

Yeah you can ask my husband .... we've got tanks everywhere, and all you can hear is the sound of water running! Our house is the only house on the street that glows when all the tank lights are on!

And we've got a 142-gallon tank in the middle of our middle room (we removed our dining table) -- so yeah, it's a bit different living in the Puffer-House. :D

No, the "Cube" as I refer to it, is our community tank, and the only puffers it's got are about 12 dwarf puffers. Otherwise it's: gouramis, Hoplo cats, weather loaches, Buenos Aires Tetras, Black Neon Tetras, Rasboras, corydoras', synodontis', bumblebee cat, and probably others that I can't remember .... and a Panther crab. I have had thoughts of getting rid of all of those and putting a Fahaka in there ... but I guess I should stop thinking about that, as some of those community fish we've had for a few years already. :)

** I don't have any saltwater tanks at all ... just a few brackish **
