Just a follow-up question. How about a 40 long? Will it be enough for 4 Amazon Puffer?

Thanks.
Yeah, that would probably be fine as long as filtration is good.

Re: Bumblebee Goby and Dwarf Puffer

Yeah, JayEmpty is correct. And I may be wrong but it sounds to me like the OP was asking why the question of cycling the tank was connected to the situation mentioned, not why the act of cycling is important.

Re: Amazon Puffer Impostor?

In a 33 gallon, I would do a group of 3 as long as there are not other tankmates.

Thanks.

Here is one of the puffers in question, just for clarity.

Your insight is always appreciated.
Definitely a SAP. Great species to own, very active.

Re: Gagging/choking?

O really? So 25% ish water change weekly, adding the new all in one fert and co2 and just leave it at that is gonna be ok? Just to confirm That sounds good. I'm not sure if you knew, but CO2 will actually lower the kH and thus pH slightly. Once again, just make sure that the CO2 levels stay as cons...

Re: What are these?

Honestly I would guess that they are Carinotetraodon Imitator, a species discovered in the 1990's that is very similar to the common dwarf puffer (C. Travancoricus)

Re: Gagging/choking?

Yea very possible. Im receiving my all in one fert today. Replacing all the other stuff. But reducing the Ph is very important for my tank as the tapwater is 8 which is way too high for the puffer. If not adding chemicals how would I reduce that? I know co2 lowers it a little bit but not enough. A ...

Re: Can any one settle this for me.. puffer poisonous to touch?

Sorry I know that the thread's like a week old but I just wanted to add that when you clean the tank and stuff, you do have to be careful not to get bitten if the fish stays in. They can do SERIOUS damage.

I\ve told him every single time he does it. It's getting really old & I have considered removing him from this forum.
I would ask that you please don't, he's a puffer keeper who definitely seems to care a lot and wants to learn and help.

Re: Breeding snails?

Yeah, I would use grown or almost grown ramshorns, and when they r young, I would use pond or bladder snails. Hopefully this helps. Look man, you seem like a nice guy but it gets pretty annoying when you bring back such old threads. It adds spam to the "Unread Posts" section, since the topics poste...

Tetraodon fluviatilis (Ceylon Puffer), is sometimes referred to as an Avocado puffer.
Oh I thought that they were referring to Auriglobus Modestus.
