Re: I bought a sick Dogface Puffer... Ugh

Good to know! He was just taking food into his mouth, chewing it, and spitting it out yesterday. Today, he's eating! Pretty excited. Hoping to get him onto a variety of foods soon, as I know krill isn't an awesome staple, but just glad to see he's eating and the store feeding wasn't a fluke. However...

Re: I bought a sick Dogface Puffer... Ugh

Fair enough. I moved him to my 55 FOWLR that's currently in hypo - it reset the clock, but he seems much happier. Eating well, and his ich symptoms have passed, so that's a relief. Still feeding foods soaked in metronidazol to try and deworm him, as well as treating the tank with prazi, but I think ...

I bought a sick Dogface Puffer... Ugh

Hey guys, I went out yesterday and visited 4 stores across my state. I was looking for a lot of fish/items, and one of those things was a small (less than 3") dog face. I wanted a small one so I could comfortably QT it in one of my 10 gallons. On my second stop, I saw one that looked pretty rough. A...

Re: GSP getting bullied by a... Molly? What?

I ended up moving the molly out last night, and the GSP has become braver already. Guess she just didn't like him.

GSP getting bullied by a... Molly? What?

Hey guys, I recently came across a 3" GSP in a freshwater store - great store, but they don't deal in salt, and the puffer had been sent to them by mistake. So I got him for free! I had been wanting one anyway, but didn't have an acclimation tank up. So, I dripped him for 8 hours into my 55 gallon F...

Valentini Puffer Feeding

Hello! New here, so apologies if I break any rules or guidelines - if I do, it's completely unintentional! I've dabbled in freshwater and brackish puffers over the years, with my favorites probably being the dwarf and GSP. I recently came across a good price on a "buy one get one free" used 29 gallo...
