Their names are Spike & Puff.
I'm pretty sure Spike is a male, but there is no brown line on his belly yet.
Puff is definetly a female with a big fat white belly :)
I have 6 total, but these 2 are best buddies.
Carinotetraodon Travancoricus (Dwarf Puffers / Pea Puffers)
6mo & 3mo old (guessing) I bought them both about 3 weeks ago.
1" & 3/4" (estimated sizes)

This picture was accidental. I was trying to get a pic of my small female Bristlenose Pleco to compare to my Bull Bristlenose.
But, she swam away when I clicked the camera. Later when I downloaded the pictures, I was surprised to see these two in the corner hanging out. It was soooo cute that I made it my avatar.
