schoutedeni - diet change advice

howdy all, you may (or may not!) remember but about 2.5 months ago I became the proud owner of a shoal of tetradon schoutedeni. They were v. small (1-2 cm) when I obtained them. They are growing really well - some of them have already nearly tripled in size!! I have been feeding them bloodworm since...

fahaka laying eggs

howdy all, had confirmation tonight that my fahaka is definitely a female! she's laid literally thousands of eggs in one patch of the aquarium. Sad that I'll never be able to get them fertilised as no way of finding a guaranteed male and even if i did they'd probably kill each other before breeding!...

Re: is this a genuine tetradon pustulatus/cross river puffer

I've made a very brave decision - closing down two of of my 3 footers to make room for a new 6 footer for the pustulatus!! I'll keep you up to date

Re: is this a genuine tetradon pustulatus/cross river puffer

I am very tempted, but need to figure out exactly where to house it!!

I have a 3 footer that is immediately available, but don't currently have any spare 5/6 footers without moving around a few different tanks.

would 3x1.5 ft do temporarily?

is this a genuine tetradon pustulatus/cross river puffer

Howdy!

one of my fave LFS have got a cross river puffer in!! I know these are often confused with spotted fahakas. What do you guys think??

They're currently asking for £1000!! I am a regular there so they may just let is go a little cheaper

Thanks

Re: Labeled Leiurus

I collected mine, pretty sure it's no leiurus (photos to follow) - he has a line accross his head - is that a give away in terms of what species?

In case you're interested i just saw this that looks like a real leiurus :

Re: They arrived!! New Baileyi and Suvatti

Howdy all.. Having been away for a week I thought i'd post an update. I was a bit nervous as to what state my puffers (especially my baileyis and savatti as they are very new and still settling in!) would be in. I had somebody going in to feed them everyday who is an experienced fish keeper but has ...
