Re: GSP Black and lethargic

sorry for your loss. Not much help to offer a fish that has suffered such a shock as yours did with that severe temp drop.

Re: Food stuck in GSP's beak!

I believe your puffer's problem is actually overgrown teeth. What is his usual diet?

Yayyyyyy!
Unfortunately, I have recently seen too many pleco deaths in my tanks to add new fish at this time. I just hope they continue to stock these fish.

Re: The Story of The Pickiest Puffer

I'd withhold food for a week & try something like an earthworm, working your way to dead foods, by bouncing it on a string.

Re: The Story of The Pickiest Puffer

How often are you offering food? Since this species doesn't move 90% of the time, 1-2x/week is fine for them. You may have to withhold food for >a week.

Re: Help with protein skimmers and powerhead circulation pumps

Look on Craigslist & Facebook. FB has many, many aquarium club & selling sites, selling used equipment. You may even have a local reef club nearby. I bought a decent skimmer for $50 from a local reefer.

Re: 29 Gallon Puffer Tank

A lot of your choice will depend on availability. Not many FW puffers available at most stores. Are you willing to pay for shipping of a single fish?

Re: The Story of The Pickiest Puffer

Yes, I have found this species to be the most difficult to get on alternative/dead foods. My 1st red one (waited 2 years to find one), only lasted 6 weeks, before it died. I did a necropsy on it & it seems to have died of fatty liver disease. Most likely due to being fed feeder goldfish for many yea...

Re: My Puffer is Acting Strange. PLEASE HELP

SG is specific gravity, the measurement of salt in your tank. Your GSP is a brackish fish, that will eventually need high-end brackish to marine conditions.

Re: Tetraodon Schoutedeni

I emailed them & offered to Paypal them for 3 of them, until I was able to put together a bigger list for them.
At what size will the 10 gallon be too small?
I'd say, 3".
