Re: My new Fahaka Puffers

Fahaka puffers are one of the top killers in the fish world. They will cause enough damage to each other to wind up with 2 dead puffers.

Re: Porcupine Fish stressed presumably due to Nitrate spike.

What filtration are you using? How many lbs live rock? Protein skimmer, powerheads?
When you say, "full" WC, how much is that?

Re: Sea salt

IO is the cheapest salt around because it doesn't include the minerals for corals. You need marine salt, not sea salt.

Re: Sea salt

I don't suggest using water from the ocean, as it comes with pathogens that fish in captivity may struggle with. You may use the least expensive marine salt, that's usually Instant Ocean.

Re: What did you do with your tank today

Re: New Puffer owner: LFS MISLED ME?!

If the smaller tank they're in now is cycled, add all the substrate, decor & filter to the 55g, along with Tetra Safestart to the filter. Add more aragonite sand to fill the bottom at around 1".

Re: Wobbly, gasping, sinking porcupine puffer

I don't believe in long acclimations. Once you open the shipping bag, the ammonia shoots up. 8 is enough to cause permanent damage to the gills. Do you think that "bump" might be air? That could cause her to swim wobbly. What do you have in the tiny tank she's in to keep the waste from poi...
