Re: GSP and powerheads.

Mine hated them when they were little and stayed at the bottom all the time but now since they are big they don't seem to care anymore. lol

Re: I neeed help deciding which puffer is for me.

Agreed with the above points. A F8 or DP is a good start.

No Petco or Petsmart or some other kind of pet shop with aquariums?

Re: OMG look at this video

Kinda disturbing how it tortured it by biting the claw, then a leg, then its tail and then went in for the kill by literally scooping out its brain.

Re: thinking of picking up a gsp but....

You can drip acclimate get a bucket with the puffer and a standard air tube with the current tank water and run it like a siphon to the bucket. I would just keep your current SG and get the Bio Spira and some live rock. No need to waste more salt aka money. lol

They are better off in full marine... Blinkey hit the nail on the head with his statement.

Re: Is there still a POTM?

I was trying to run it at the end and did so for about a year but it got harder and harder to get people interested enough to get submissions in. As stated here http://www.thepufferforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=34238 On top of that it was about that time the forum was getting overrun with spam.

Re: GSP single or pair? + Brackish Plants?

I did the gradual transition but really in retrospect I would just go full marine and get it out of the way and drip acclimate the puffers.

Re: black bellied gsp - constantly

I converted mine from fresh to full marine within 6-8 months after getting them.

Re: black bellied gsp - constantly

Yeah if this has persisted for a while but the puffer seems "normal" it may just be a personality/behavioral trait maybe? Each puffer will be different. I have one which does this too. The others never have though.
