Re: Tetraodon nigroviridis.

In fact I would like to breed them alone, also because in the future I foresee not only to increase salinity, I would like to change the bottom by putting aragonitic sand bringing the values ​​of ph over 8 and salinity to 1015. So I stay on the monospecies.

Re: Tetraodon nigroviridis.

Hello, I read on a guide book ("starting the brackish acquarium" of Cody Shoup) It suggests among the many possible arrangements, a tank of 130 lt or greater with 2 tetraodon and 5 brachigobius. For the salinity discourse as the puffer grows I will bring it to about 1015. Values ​​always suitable al...

Re: Tetraodon biocellatus.

I contacted a shopkeeper at his disposal t.biocellatus, said they are 2/3 cm and keeps them in fresh water. I'm tempted to a herd in fresh and not brackish water. What do you recommend?

Re: Tetraodon biocellatus.

Thanks for all the advice, and I will contact the shopkeeper before buying the fish I think I'm going to put t.biocellatus 2/3 and 5 b.doriae. I will begin to put the salt a little at a time to achieve the desired salinity in 3/4 weeks. I'll keep you up-to-date.

Re: Tetraodon biocellatus.

Good evening, there is a table that facilitates the calculation of the amount of salt to be added to achieve the desired salinity? Making comparisons and an equivalence, it is for example in my case: 40 g to a salinity of 1,005 I calculated about 1,35 lb of salt. I don't know if it's right.

Re: Tetraodon biocellatus.

Ok thanks for the time being, I'll start to salt water by this weekend. The only undecided at this point about the species, would also attracted by fluviatilis that at this time in Italy is easy. What about 40 g may be enough with a nice layout?

Re: Tetraodon biocellatus.

It would be my first experience with the puffer, I have bred many species, almost all wild. I would like to raise them to the best, I have a empty tub and already mature, planted with anubias and microsorum, brackish water before I could have clearly put the fish. If there was some kind of easier br...
