My Abei has arrived. Made it safe and sound, he is pissed as hell but alive. He is really dark right now but thinking he is just stressed from the trip. He is drip acclimating right now. Will have pics once he settles in

Full tank shots! Your puffer looks cute and is curling its caudal fin like mine does when I am around.

ya i need to get the crab out but have to wait till he moves from his hiding spot in the DW cause i cant get him out of it to save my life once he goes in there.

He is doing great, he was out and swimming a little and already ate part of an earthworm. He makes bloat look like an old man, he is so fast to strike lol.

He finally found his good cave and is curled up in the back of it right now just relaxing after eating

Got home this morning to see him out and swimming so I got a few shots.

In the first shot, that snail shell is just the shell, tossed it in yesterday thinking it was to big to be messed with but I guess he knocked it down/over and sucked the snail out lol.
