Porc behavior

Hello. I've kept a porcupine puffer for a long time. It's healthy, happy etc.Then I've bought a bigger tank, and decided to add another porc. Done. The small one was introduced to new tank first, then the old one. They accepted each other, swim together, beg for food, the smaller one slept on the bi...

Re: Identify puffer

HI again. My puffers seems to live healthy and happily. A few days ago I found another one which pattern seems very similar to my puffer. I've bought him. The pictures were taken a few minutes later after getting him to my tank. Probably not so healthy as others but I'm looking forward to it. http:/...

Re: GSP refuse to eat and more

Thank you, it was probably PH drop after salt brand change. Now all puffers still slim but eating good.

Is it possible the pH of this different brand of salt is different than the other?
Possible fore sure. I don't have sw tests still to measure parameters. Ammonia, nitrite, nitrate should be possible removed with water changes, but how long it will take...

GSP refuse to eat and more

Hello. It's the first time I have problem with them. Both puffers refuse to eat, often stays in filter stream, itches on the walls and become way less rounded than before. Anyway, the most of the time their bellies are still white. They seem to breath heavier than usual and sometimes with one ?gill?...

Re: Does anyone else have a smiley face on the back of an ad

Possible. But right now the GSP's twice larger tnan a F8. When I've bought him, Satou-kun was 3 times larger than f8. But still not even one try to kill. Maybe I'm just lucky.

Re: Fitness for puffers

You want to feed snail the size of thier eye. Best option is to setup a snail breeding tank and get pond and ramshorn snails. I usually give a ramshorn snail to them. Their teeth seems to be trimmed properly. Mylania snail is too hard for them still. I know but I saw a lot of examples of f8 in mari...

Re: Fitness for puffers

The middle one is a figure 8 and needs brackish water, not salt water... Maybe just feed them every other day? That's what I do for all my puffs. How many gallons/liters is the tank? I've never hear of it before... I know but I saw a lot of examples of f8 in marine water. Well, Juwel Lido 200 is 20...

Fitness for puffers

Hi again. As you mentioned before, my puffers seems to be too fat. I've recently bought a new tank for them, this is Juwel Lido 200 because only it could fit my flat. I'm very slowly moving them to marine conditions. Now the salinity is 10ppm. All of puffers seems to be very happy active etc. And ev...

Re: Veggie puffer

The tank size is 300l, I can't give them a larger one because I have no space in room for larger tank, but I'm ready to up salinity even to the marine if they need it, the current tank setup is ready for it and require almost no changes at all. But at the current state they seems to be ok in fw with...
