Re: Golden Buddha Puffer???

I tried live earthworms, live blackworms (which he was supposed to be eating) clams, Mysis, bloodworms, squid, plankton, even Mysis. Even with garlic he wouldn't touch anything. Water perameters were checke...

Re: Golden Buddha Puffer???

Yes, I've been looking at an acrylic 120 gal. tank, 48x24x24. I've always had glass tanks; are acrylic tanks lighter in weight than glass? I was thinking that they were, as I have tanks already that weigh a lot, for this old farmhouse lol

Re: Golden Buddha Puffer???

Hi Did more research and found that this is a sphoeroides rosenblatti. Not a lot is known about these puffers, but they have been found in brackish/freshwater estuaries, and mangrove swamps in South America west coast.
