Re: Ich in new figure 8 puffers...

Yeah, unfortunately, so do their spines. I'd be surprised at SG if it was ich. Are there any spots on their fins?

Re: Hairy puffer is on his laying funny on plants

No reason for a salt bath, he doesn't have external parasites. Try gut-loading any fish you offer him by feeding them vitamin-enriched food. Like, soaking blackworms in vita-chem.

Re: Schoutedeni teeth

Once the teeth are overgrown, you need to clip them.

Re: Hairy puffer is on his laying funny on plants

LOL, maybe he doesn't like the dirty glass?
He looks very thin. Is that bump on the bottom the food he ate or air?

Re: Porupine Puffer with Ich and suspected Lock-jaw Looking for second opinions on treatment.

What makes you think this? What species? What is the diet like? Probably best to start a new thread in the Hospital forum.

Re: New to planted aquascape and puffers looking for some advice and hello

[welcome]
Lovely tank! Unfortunately, with all that's in there, there's really room for only 1 DP. Stocking is suggested at 5g/puffer anyway.
