Re: 500L tank, help with installing tank and filtration

How large is the puffer now? I tend to feed daily, to a slightly rounded belly, until the fish is about 3" & then start skipping days. As a full-grown adult, I feed 2x/week.

Re: Valentini teeth trimming?

Can you get a clearer pic of the front of this fish? Why is his tail all frayed? Water parameters? Tank size? Inhabitants?

Re: Breeding Dwarf Puffers

It appears many I know are having the same luck--except me!\

BTW, by topping off evaporated water with tap water, you are hardening the water a lot, by adding more minerals. Even with little to no nitrate, weekly water changes are necessary.

Re: 500L tank, help with installing tank and filtration

Re: dwarf puffers in a cube tank

Actually, small shrimps do fine with DPs. Lots of folks are very successful with cherry shrimp. Don't ask me why! I would be concerned with the fleshy periscope eyes of crabs. Mine don't touch ottos.

Really, 123L isn't even large enough for a single adult GSP.

Re: Water change and 3-week holiday

Please do not do that. If anything they should add fresh RO water. Your cycle is precarious at best in this seriously overstocked tank.

Re: Water change and 3-week holiday

Your tank is much too small for these fish & the water will pollute very quickly. Filters do not remove pollution, it stores it. Why would you have her add SW to the tank? What SG is it now?

Re: Gsp surfing glass

You don't need foods to fit into their mouth. They have serious chompers to cut into flesh.

How heavily decorated is the tank? When are you upgrading?

Re: Water change and 3-week holiday

How large are those puffers? Filtration? Will you be having someone feeding them?
