Re: FS: Rare Abei Puffer 5-6"

I'd like to remind everyone that the Petco $1 per gallon sale is in full effect. Best time to start up an Abei tank is now! :)

FS: Rare Abei Puffer 5-6"

Going to be moving to another house pretty soon and unfortunately I have to thin down my stock. I would like the abei to go to someone with a lot of puffer experience, preferably someone who can home in another 40b with good filtration and hiding spots. He is full of energy and loves to swim around ...

Abei puffer tankmate/Chicago area

So I'm thinking about adding another abei puffer to my 40b. Both will be about 4". Any tips on making this cohab work?

I'd also like to know if anyone in the Chicago area is interested in an Abei puffer incase they don't get along I have a new home for.it.

Digesting shells

So I crushed a half shell clam to get my puffer some crunch time and noticed my puffer swallowed some pieces of clam shell. Is a puffers digestive system built to break down shells?

snails

Is it possible to breed ramshorn snails in a 5 gallon bucket with just a heater and airstone? I would obviously treat the water with prime every week during a waterchange....I read the library but just wanted to see if its really necessary to have a sponge filter or can I get by without it.

Re: Puffer chirping

Nope he makes that noise everyday. Best way is to have the video in HD and turn the volume all the way up. The first chirp is very feint the second and third are noticeable, watch the puffers mouth as he makes the noise.

Puffer chirping

So one of the first things I noticed about my puffer when it was first settling in was that it would chirp every once in awhile. As the days went on I could hear him chirp atleast once a day. So today I was able to get it on video, unfortunately he's not that close to the camera but you can still he...
