Re: Looking for suggestions for a solo puffer in 55g tank.

The Fahaka image is not coming through. The manager I trust at the store got me on an obvious thought. BaitWorms- feed them. Get past the stage of the bait tub they came in. I think I may do a live bait worm tub with compost and banana peels etc. Gut loaded worms (by me). I have to figure out where ...

Re: Looking for suggestions for a solo puffer in 55g tank.

How is the Fahaka?
-liking people?

I hope you got a nice one.
That is too big of a potential body to be a hider or lurker.

Re: palustris and cutcutia puffers in route

How big do the Palustris Puffers get? I somewhat believe what is out there as for size info, but I'm trying to make sure I even have the species I think I do! 2 Palustris and 2 Cutcutia came from the Wetspot. The employee said the cutcutia went ape-nuts over a green algae magnet at the store. I bel...

Re: 75 gallon tank setup for dwarf puffers

You can get away with a bare bottom tank and new species with deceiving false bottoms and some aged driftwoood. A simple layout of flat rocks and other good looking chunks They shade the reflection from lights and bare glass. An outflow pipe or pump aimed in the right area can keep a large amount of...

Re: Anyone know where to find a list of puffers by size?

You happen to know what time of the year the more uncommon puffers start showing up? What are you searching for as for "nice ones" out there. I'd say a really good looking hairy puffer is a hard find that likes people and interaction. Help me out with some new species to research if you wouldn't mi...

Re: palustris and cutcutia puffers in route

Curious what you paid for the anubias? I sell mine & never know what to charge for them. Short story: There are so many types of Anubias! We love em. Advertised at 14.99 (large Anubias barteri var. coffeefolia), but the store was not doing the same $14.99 that day and I got lucky. $7.99 each., and ...

Re: palustris and cutcutia puffers in route

Wow! On time and healthy looking. Thanks Wetspot. Some were timid the first day. Today, day #2 (arrived on the 7th) I bought them all giant bunches of Anubias plants for coverage. They are quite active and hungry enough to corner and chase ghost shrimp. I can have pics sometime this weekend, but I d...

palustris and cutcutia puffers in route

I had a chance to order the palustris and cutcutia a few weeks ago when they were posted, but the weather out here on the Northern states is good and then bad. After thinking it over, I planned out an order for a few of them to arrive on the 7th. I should have grabbed more palustris having a feeling...

Re: Looking for suggestions for a solo puffer in 55g tank.

I really like the size of the dragon puffer and it is definitely high on my list right now . Does anyone know of another puffer that's a little more active around that size? Freshwater preferably but I am toying with the idea of having another brackish tank. My 2nd dragon/palembangensis as stated w...

Re: Looking for suggestions for a solo puffer in 55g tank.

My pick is the Humpback puffer. https://www.thepufferforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=28651 Super choice. I have two of the palembangensis. One fun and the other is no fun. I'd love to say you can have my 2nd one that is a pet pock! ...I just don't know if they are going to a better home or wor...
