Re: to trust or not to trust????

He goes from white to black or mottled very wuickley and for no apparent reason, as ive said in another thread, water paramatres are fine, salinity is about 1.003.

Someone said that sometimes you just get a puffer that changes colour.

Re: Just added first bit of salt

Its a ceylon puffer Hes about 3" including tail, and a good inch wide too.

I was intending on only doing 2 gallon changes for the time being about every 4 days, does this seem ok???? Then when the SG is steady then i will increase it a bit more.

Re: to trust or not to trust????

Im pretty sure that it is not a fig 8, as is already 3" long. Looks like a ceylon puffer according to the internet sites.

Is it really that common for a decent LFS to wrongly name fish????
