Re: Lifespan, How old is or was your oldest puffer?

Update on my puffers:
Hairy puffer going on about 6 years, 1 month with me now.

Arrowhead is at 1 year, 8 months

This is just counting time with me, not sure how old they were before coming to me from the wild.

I got to the point where all my would eat are live worms.
This is what I do too. Very hard for fish to resist live wiggling worms.

Awesome puff! @DDR2

What size tank you raising him in? Mine is pretty active and he makes good use of the 65B he is in. Way overkill, I know, but he is happy.

Re: Filtration for pufffers?

When it comes to cheap filters the Penguin 350b fill the bill. Can be had on sale for $25 and rated for 70 gallons. Granted I would use two on that 75 gallon tank. While initial cost would maybe be $50 for two of them the lifetime price of cartridges would just add up to quite a bit. For longterm sa...

Let's see some pics!

My guy looked at that beautiful, orange fresh krill then looked at me like I slapped him. I did not see that coming
Agree on the pics! lol

My hairy is totally addicted to krill, yours probably need to settle in still. Or it might just be one of those picky puffs...

Re: ISO Young Hairy

I use gravel so no digging or burying behavior but mine loves her cave. http://i68.tinypic.com/2jbnux.jpg But she is outgoing and always comes out to see me when I come into the room. She is quite the begger and expects food. She is gorgeous... and looks big. How big is she? Probably 5” or so... no...

Re: Marine Shore Crabs

I feed shore crabs to my Hairy and Arrowhead all the time. I do pull off the claws so my fish dont get damaged. Since the crabs are saltwater and the fish are freshwater I dont worry too much about any nasty stuff getting into the tank. I would be more concerned if they were going into brackish or s...

Re: Tetraodon miurus questions

After thinking about it I would rather have 1 Tetradon miurus rather than 2+ other puffers. I just love the look of Tetradon miurus and am fine with keeping one of them as their beauty makes up for it. The Miurus will be fiesty, fun and affordable. I see where confusion could arise by using ‘Congo’...

Re: ISO Young Hairy

@Smashtoad, just saw the hairy puffer listed on Wet Spots fish list. $100 for a 3-5” wild caught.
