I just got my fahaka puffer in. I was expecting a 2-3 incher, and he's less that an inch. He's in a fully cycled 120 gal. I'm not new to puffers, but I never had one this tiny. Needless to say I was prepared to feed a slightly larger fahaka. What should this little guy be eating? And how often?
well i seem to have lost my fahaka. hes in a six foot tank filled with gravel the same size and color as he is. i removed all the rocks and decor carefully and still cant find him. he likes to sit on the bottom still and blend into the rocks. like i said before.....i was expecting a larger puffer. the site i ordered him from said they ship at 2-3 inches.
Actually, after pulling my whole tank apart and still not finding him. I decided to check the canister filter. And even though I had a screen on it he managed to get in there. My only guess is he was chasing some food or something. He would of had to work at getting in there. But he's ok. I now have him in one of those little floating quarantine deals. The filter opening now has foam on the end. But ill probably keep in in the floating thing for a few days to make sure he's eating.
