Thanks

Re: Congo Puffer Food

Seems to me this might be a BIG chore considering their instinct is to hide and ambush; I have a lurker (Orange Abei) and he has eaten dead once but seems very unenthusiastic. Throw something live in and it's a blood bath of aggression.

Re: New puffer.....

He's pretty cool....very aggressive, much more so than my GSP. Today he started charging the tank wall with his beak every time I would move my hand in front of him. Vey food oriented. There isn't much movement from him once he gets a full belly of earthworm or grub, but afterwards and once he's hun...

Re: New puffer.....

I added him to my gallery.....

A quick tutorial on how to move it to an actual post would be great. Scoured the site but directions are lacking.

New puffer.....

Picked up an orange abei puffer from a fish store about an hour south of me. He's only about an inch long but shows nice orange circles along with those awesome abei eyes. To my surprise he was only $18.99! And yes, I did a very careful inspection to ensure he was actually an orange abei. He's eatin...

Re: Krill Junkie....

Removed the larger cray cray and took him back to the LFS. When I returned the smaller cray and the ghost shrimp were missing....and Taco had a big belly :D

Guess I overestimated his ability to handle a larger cray.....Taco is only about 2 full inches.

Re: Krill Junkie....

The crayfish made it through the night so I'm going to remove him today. I've fed Taco beetles I've caught outside before and he seems to love them. Also, redworms after a good rain. I'm going by Wal Mart today and pick up some more worms so I can have them on hand. I'll swing by the supermarket and...

Krill Junkie....

So, since I bought my GSP a little over a month ago he's been eating frozen krill exclusively; what he was being fed in the pet store. I tried introducing small snails but he seems very uninterested. I decided to not feed him for a few days and today I went to the pet store and picked up about an in...

Re: Switch to 38G bow.....

Did a 25% water change and added a bottle of Safestart....not Safestart plus though, not sure if that'll matter. I also have Prime.....do you recommend one over the other? Also added a second filter, the 200 BioWheel that came with the bow front. Not a fan of this filter versus my Aquaclear but it'l...

Switch to 38G bow.....

Hi ladies and gents! I've been lurking and soaking up as much info as I can for a while now and have some water readings to spit out. I have 1 GSP (2 inches roughly) and 1 lowly fish store saved F8 (very small and emaciated) that I've switched over to a 38G Marineland bow front. Half inch argonite s...

New with hexagon.....

New to puffers and to the forum; bought a 20 gallon hexagon with LED lighting and just now added play sand to get it going. Still deciding on what puffer I want; leaning towards 2-3 dwarf puffers. Also, need to upgrade the filter that came with the Aqueon, thinking of an APi.

Thanks
