Re: New GSP Owner

Everything's going pretty good so far. I've bought some Livebearer/Brackish salt for them and am trying to slowly raise the salinity of the tank. I also bought some frozen half-shell baby clams specifically intended for aquarium use, and put about three of those in his tank. The only bad thing is th...

Re: New GSP Owner

New GSP Owner

Hey there! I just bought a Green Spotted Puffer today and I had a couple questions. I bought my tank pretty recently, and set it up about a week before I bought the puffer. The tank had been previously used, and it was just emptied when I bought it, so the gravel and filter had already matured and h...
