Re: Please help

Thank you for the reply I will do a water change, now. I was doing what I was told on another forum.

I have bad eyes. My wife said there were white "things" hanging off of him.

What can I do to help him. Photos to come after the water change.

Please help

I recently, 3 weeks, bought my dream fish a New Guinea puffer, that is still in quarantine. When he came he was doing very well. In the last week he has really gone down hill. He is listless, not eating and getting very skinny. His coloring is pale and mottled. There is stringy mucousy substance on ...

Re: Help identify this puffer

Thank you for the link. I have spent this evening getting to know mappa puffers. Holy cow Mappas are some big boys!!! I am sad I will not be able to keep him. He is so beautiful but I fully agree a 250 is nowhere near big enough. I will spend the next week looking for a good home.

I guess I better start researching a mappa puffers. I really hope they are not to aggressive. When he gets a little bigger he will be transf...

Re: Bloated Guinea fowl puffer please help

Thank you for responding I feel so relieved that the mucus/air bubbles are nothing to worry about!!

I am using the prazi in the water. I did not know you can/should treat his food. How do you treat his food?

Several of my tanks developed the white fuzz on the wood and not one had any effect on the fish or water parameters. Just give it time...

Re: Bloated Guinea fowl puffer please help

He is eating well. He eats Rod's fish food, originel and predator. I feed him a small amount twice a day. He is swimming with his tail curled and tucked. He is hiding a bit, but that maybe because he associates me with catching him for his freshwater dips. I just stated treating him for parasites be...
