Re: tetraodon Nigroviridis.

Those looks like some happy little GSPs. How long have you had the bigger ones? I'm excited for mine to grow a bit, I feel like he should be huge for how much he eats.

Re: New tank build for my GSP

I did, I was just wondering if you had any personal opinions on what you like best.

Re: Do gsp’s like strong flow?

Hey Mark, I think the stronger flow in some areas of the tank is probably fine for the GSP as long as they have a place to rest. I know mine loves to swim right up into pump output and surf the jetstream but then he can rest in the bottom of the tank. In the wild these puffers swim in estuaries, riv...

Re: New tank build for my GSP

I have been feeding him mostly frozen blood worms and mysis shrimp and ramshorn or baby mystery snails. The snails he's not super crazy about but he will eat them. I am worried he isn't getting enough of his vitamins though. Is there any particular frozen food you can recommend as a staple, market p...

Re: New tank build for my GSP

UPDATE TIME! Puffertini is now in 1.018 Salinity and is doing really well. The protein skimmer is starting to work and he soon might try some new friends in the form of damselfish. I added about 12 nerite snails and I think almost all of them have survived his wrath so far. Weird thing is he doesn't...

Re: New tank build for my GSP

To cycle it I had a ton of media sitting in my african cichlid tank. Also another interesting story for this tank, the night I put the mollies in, one of the females started having babies. I was able to get her in the breeder box before the puffer ate them all but he must have had at least six molli...

New tank build for my GSP

Hi All, I just setup my first puffer tank. I got this scratched up 55 gallon tank off craigslist for next to nothing and built a small sump into the side of it. The design was apparently flawed as I wanted to keep different water levels in there for the future protein skimmer but the flow from colum...
