Re: puffed up porc

Juke used to practice puff a lot more. I hardly ever see him do it now. I wonder if it's a juvenile puff thing. I think he's about 3 now.

Re: Puffer tank mates

I have a tiny Swales Swissguard Basslet. It's the only other fish with my porcupine puff and is the only fish that has made it with him. Probably because he is a fast rock dwelling fish.

Re: How long does it take for a puffed Pufferfish to unpuff?

Sometimes I get lucky enough to catch juke as he is beginning to puff and it seems like he holds it a little longer. If he is already puffed, the second I get over there he starts spitting out water. I couldn't upload a photo but if you check out my gallery, it has some nice porcupine puffer picture...

Re: My porcupine puffer only eats peas!

Yeah those are his favorites, not the only things in his diet. How long can fish go without eating?

Re: Mbu tail injury, surgery fix?

Not true. Some injuries heal on there own in the ocean. Havnt you ever seen fish with a chunk takin out of them that survived. It happens all the time in their natural habitat and some make it through.

Re: My porcupine puffer only eats peas!

My porc won't eat lobster, squid or any if that type of stuff. His favorites are raw shrimp I buy at the deli and snails
