Fahakas are strong, powerful & determined fish. It would have no problem getting to those Congos to kill them when it wishes.

25° C,use air into the water

Many people come to the puffer forum with the wrong information. This forum is made up of a lot of very knowledgeable puffer keepers with years of experience. I understand that you haven't purposely kept your puffer in inadequate conditions. Now that you do know you are being cruel to them I hope you will take steps to solve the problems which are many.

trickle filters and fluidized beds are not that common here. Not saying that they don't work, just that most people don't use them. They are fairly advanced topics for most keepers.

If you can do it, the more power to you! If the numbers are under control.. keep on doing what you are doing.
if you follow me, you avoid stepping in the crap that I just did...

Just purely wondering why no other media is used, better results are generally obtained by a mix of different media are they not?
