Re: C. irrubesco eggs

Cool. I'm going to try to remove eggs and raise at next spawning although the eggs were eaten within an hour or so. Just have to keep an eye on them and hopefully catch them in time.
Thanks for the info. Dave

Re: C. irrubesco eggs

RTR. You mentioned in a previous post that these have not been bred (many years ago) I take it they have now? Or did you mean reared to sellable size? Thanks dave

Re: C. irrubesco eggs

That's how I fed my baby fighters minus the eels. So the Puffers will feed the same?

Re: C. irrubesco eggs

Why is it so hard to raise puffers? I have raised other egg scatterers with ease. Will they not eat micro worm and baby brine shrimp (when older) what makes them difficult to raise? I would like tips as I would like to try.
Cheers Dave

Re: Fahaka puffer wiskers?

Don't have a net so they will just have to take their chance in with the adults. I've posted pics in the breeding section if you want a look. I'll do it properly when I get back.

C. irrubesco eggs

Thought I'd share my experience with my red eyed red tailed puffers to say thanks for the help I recieved recently from the forum. Here goes.... I have had my Puffers for around 2 months. I did not plan to breed them and did nothing but feed regularly. I noticed the female was getting quite fat and ...

Re: Fahaka puffer wiskers?

Out of interest.... Is there any sort of parasitic worms which latch on like this and the symmetry is just a coincidence?

Re: Fahaka puffer wiskers?

Thanks. I enjoy taking pictures of my Puffers as they are usually slower than other fish and a bit easier to photograph. Still a pain though especially for him as he is only just over an inch now. Took me a while to get a usable shot.

Re: Fahaka puffer wiskers?

I have searched the web looking at pictures and for info but can't find anything like it. Doesn't seem to be affecting him though. Eating like a pig, active, pooping etc

Fahaka puffer wiskers?

Hi, Can someone tell me if it is normal for a Fahaka puffer to have 2 barbs sticking out from its chin? I haven't noticed any other pictures of Fahakas with these and thought they may be a parasite although the symmetry makes me think otherwise. I have only had him a couple of weeks and noticed them...

Yeah. I've read your replies during my research period. Neale does a lot of the puffer questions now. As you will probably know.
